The flavors of autumn are the best, right? Well wait until you try this Autumn Spiced Turkey Salad recipe! If you have leftover turkey, this recipe is a must! 

This unique salad recipe combines all the flavors of fall. The apples and dried cranberries are sweet and tart, and the spices complement the flavor of the turkey.

The cinnamon and nutmeg add an unexpected layer of flavor that is so comforting this time of year. That reminds me, if you like this salad you will LOVE this chili recipe.

I typically make this recipe right after Thanksgiving and Christmas because we always cook a turkey.

However, the past several years my husband has smoked a turkey in his smoker. Just when I thought this salad could not get any better…it did! There is nothing quite like the taste of smoked turkey and it seems like the flavor gets better and better as it sits in the fridge.

By the way, I think I should tell you…I actually find this salad delicious in the heat of summer. When is turkey, cinnamon, and “salad” ever a bad thing?! Enjoy!
