Dried Cherry Toasted Almond Turkey Salad Sandwiches
(Makes 4 servings)

This is a delicious and versatile lunch or light dinner. I actually made it using cooked chicken breast instead of the turkey and dried cranberries instead of the cherries and it was fantastic.

1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup plain soy yogurt
3 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
1 teaspoon bottled ground fresh ginger (such as Spice World, the stuff in the jar that you keep in the fridge, not ground ginger--SEE NOTE)
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (I omitted due to personal preference)
3/4 cup thinly sliced celery (I chopped it)
1/4 cup chopped red onions (I omitted... raw onions don't like me)
1/4 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup golden raisins
8 ounces roast cooked turkey breast, chopped
4 pita breads, cut in half (6 inch)

Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add almonds, cook 2 minutes or until toasted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; set aside.
Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, ginger and crushed red pepper in a medium bowl. Add almonds, celery and next four ingredients (through turkey), stirring well to combine. Spoon 1/3 cup turkey mixture into each pita half.

NOTE: I couldn't find ginger in a jar at my tiny grocery store, so I just threw in some ground ginger. I bet it would be even better as written.
