The turkey salad brings together elements of a traditional creamy, mayo-based sandwich filling with Mexican ingredients like fresh cilantro, spicy pickled jalapeño, and lime (both the acidic juice and the super-flavorful zest). And this dish gets even better when we top the filling with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and grated cheddar cheese, and fold it up in a soft flour tortilla to make fresh, fantastic tacos. This no-cook recipe takes just a few minutes to make, and is great for lunch or dinner; eaten at home or wrapped up to bring to work or school. Let these tacos take the place of takeout. They're healthy, tasty, and just as quick.
