Today's Special: Apricot-Nut Turkey-Salad Sandwiches

For those on-the-go nights, when you're in the door and out the door with very little time for a meal, don't order take out or pick up something premade from the store, make yourself a quick, healthy, and delicious turkey salad sandwich. Portable and easy to digest on the go, this recipe calls for only a small amount of mayonnaise and is packed with flavor. Dried fruits and nuts are interesting additions that meld surprisingly well due to the sweetness of the apricots and the crunch of the cashews. This sandwich is also a scrumptious selection for an afternoon picnic. For the recipe, please
