This Spiced Turkey Salad will be a wonderful addition to your dinner menu. It is a delicious and refreshing way to use up cooked brown turkey meat. Ras-el-hanout is a Morrocan spice mix. It means “top of the shop” or high class and a good mixture will contain about 20 spices but it can contain more. Commonly it has paprika, cumin, chilli, cinnamon, rose petals, fennel, allspice etc.
