Turkey-Apple Salad

Seeded crispbreads add crunch to this seasonal dish.

“This simple take on chicken salad has all of the bright flavors of a Thanksgiving stuffing, but with the refreshing crispness of apple and celery,” says Denver-based recipe developer Julia Heffelfinger. “I like to use a little mayo in the dressing to add depth to the Greek yogurt, but that step is optional.”
