Leftover turkey or chicken Asian salad

If you’ve got leftover turkey or chicken, here’s a great Asian-inspired salad to make with it.

The Asian dressing (from my Good Food Cookbook) is very tasty and brings life to any salad! The hoisin adds a rich salty flavour that really compliments meat. I love adding plenty of herbs to this salad. Have this by itself for a lighter meal, or wrap it up in a wrap. Leftover turkey and chicken is so great to have in the fridge – so useful to whip up a healthy lunch!
