Raspberry Turkey Salad Recipe

Here is a  recipe for turkey that you can have on Thanksgiving or after with those leftovers!

This recipe was graciously provided to me by Driscoll’s (you can print a 50 cent coupon there, too, on the bottom right corner).  All those strawberries you see on my site are usually Driscoll’s!

Helpful Tip  – In addition to its fresh, soft form, ricotta is also sold in salted, baked and smoked. The pressed, salted and dried variety of the cheese is known as ricotta salata. A milky-white hard cheese used for grating or shaving, ricotta salata is sold in wheels, decorated by a delicate basket-weave pattern.
