1.Combine drumsticks, rind, juice, honey, turmeric, garlic, ginger, oils and coriander in large bowl; cover, refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.
2.Preheat oven to 160°C/140°C fan-forced.
3.Drain drumsticks; reserve marinade. Place drumsticks on oiled wire rack in large baking dish; roast, uncovered, 1 hour 35 minutes or until cooked through, turning and basting every 20 minutes with reserved marinade. Remove drumsticks from oven, cover loosely with foil; stand 15 minutes before slicing meat from bones.
4.While the turkey is cooking, make the bread salad. Increase oven temperature to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Tear bread into bite-size pieces. Toss bread and 2 tablespoons of the oil in baking dish; roast, uncovered, 10 minutes or until golden. Cool. Combine bread, remaining oil, vinegar, spinach, basil, tomato and onion in large bowl. Season to taste.

Turkey drumsticks are available from poultry shops and most major supermarkets. Turn this recipe into a tossed salad by mixing the sliced turkey through the ingredients, rather than serving it alongside the salad.
