Thanksgiving Leftovers: Curried Turkey, Spinach and Cashew Salad

Sure you can make a sandwich with your turkey leftovers.  And I'll post a great recipe tomorrow.  But why not shake things up and make a salad?  This one sounds yummy.

Curried Turkey, Spinach and Cashew Salad
Makes 4 servings.
From Cooking Light magazine.

1/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
5 cups loosely packed baby spinach
2 cups chopped cooked skinless turkey (light and dark meat)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped roasted, salted cashews
1/2 cup golden raisins (Personal preference, but I'd probably leave these out.)
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
Combine the first 7 ingredients in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Add spinach and remaining ingredients; toss well to combine.
