Turkey Salad Recipe

Turkey Salad with Wasa 7 Grain Crackerbread

Since I cooked my turkey yesterday, today I chopped up some of the white meat to make turkey salad.  Here's my recipe which would work for any cycle of the 17 Day Diet.  Once you've reached the 3rd cycle, Achieve, you can eat it with whole grain bread or if you are dying for a cracker, try Wasa brand Crisp'n'Light 7 grain crackerbread. 20 calories per slice, 0 g fat, 15 g carbs, 2 g protein.

3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1 green onion
1 Teaspoon Orange Zest (optional)
