A fresh taste for your leftover turkey!

Hi.  Here's a perfect use for your leftover turkey.  My neighbor and friend just made it today and gave me some.  God bless her!  I had no idea what I was going to make for supper tonight.  And I've been craving fresh vegetables and salads, so this hit the spot.  The recipe is here:  http://www.recipehouse.com/Amy's-cookbook/recipe/1/Asian-Chicken-Slaw
