Recipe Yields: 2-3 servings

1 and 1/2 pounds leftover turkey, breast and thigh, pulled apart
1/2 cup bean sprouts
4 breakfast radishes, sliced thin
8 ounces watercress, picked (arugula can be used instead)
2 ounces peanuts, toasted
2 ounces daikon, thinly shaved
2 teaspoons ginger, fresh grated
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
1/4 bunch cilantro, leaves picked (if desired)
1 tablespoon olive oil
5 ounces Bang Bang sauce


Wash all the salad ingredients and set aside on clean paper towel to absorb excess moisture.

In large mixing bowl, combine watercress, bean sprouts, radishes, daikon and ginger. Season to taste with salt and toss evenly with olive oil as desired. Place in serving bowls.

Over medium heat, in large saute pan, add turkey and bang bang sauce. Cook until thoroughly heated.

Distribute evenly over salads and finish with toasted peanuts and sesame seeds.
