Smoked Turkey Salad

We enjoy smoking meats in DH's electric smoker;  we really enjoy eating them too.  A few days ago I smoked a turkey breast and used a water pan with some fresh rosemary underneath it to add steam and a little extra flavor.   It's been eaten for dinner and the leftovers make good hearty sandwiches.

Today I decided to make some turkey salad to use up some of the leftovers.  Here's what I came up with.  It's chilling in the fridge and will be my lunch in a couple of hours.

makes 1 generous serving

3 oz. diced smoked turkey
2 T. Miracle Whip salad dressing
2 T. low fat sour cream
2 stalks of finely sliced celery
2 T minced onion
2 T. grated carrot
6 seedless red grapes, quartered
2 tsp. sunflower seeds

Mix all ingredients well and serve on a bed of shredded lettuce.

***tried to calculate the WW points for this.  I’m counting the turkey as 1, Miracle Whip and Sour Cream as 4, and sunflower seeds as 1 for a total of 6 points.*****
