Autumn Spiced Turkey Salad

If you have leftover turkey, this easy recipe is a must! This healthy gluten free salad recipe combines all the flavors of fall. The crunchy apples and dried cranberries are sweet and tart, and the cinnamon and nutmeg complement the flavor of the turkey breast (try smoked meat!). Use this clean eating harvest salad in a sandwich, wrap, or with vegetable dippers. Use plain Greek yogurt in place of mayo or dairy free almond yogurt too.
