Turkey Salad Sandwich

right after I graduated from High School I got a job at a local grocery store (D&W) and I worked there until a few days before I turned 21. One of my fondest memories of working at the store was the turkey salad on a pita I used to get for lunch. This turkey salad was special because it had grapes in it that just went so well with a whole wheat pita. Often I have dreamt of that sandwich and a few weeks ago I decided to try to make it and it is better than I remember.

1 12.5 oz can turkey packed in water
1/2 cup grapes, cut in half
2 T. purple onion, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
1/3 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup carrots, finely chopped
1 T. Honey Mustard
1 T. Mayo
1/4 cup low fat yogurt
salt and pepper to taste

Drain water off of Turkey and place turkey in a medium bowl add in all the chopped vegetables and grapes.

Mix the mustard, mayo, yogurt, salt and pepper in a small bowl and then add to the turkey mixture.

Stir all the ingredients together and serve on crackers, on lettuce leaves or (my fav) Milton's wheat Bread.
