Sliced turkey on a cold meat platter or between slices of bread needs little embellishment, but cubes of light or dark meat, even odd sized pieces, have great possibilities. It doesn't take much in the way of a special sauce or dressing, some seasonings, and assorted ingredients for turkey. Many of the sandwiches produced in this way are festive enough for company occasions.
