Blend the tomato purée with the orange juice or white wine, then stir into a pan with the lemon juice and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, strain and reserve the liquor until cool.
Blend the fromage frais and mayonnaise together then stir in the cooled liquor. Drain the apricots and purée them. Next, stir them into the mayonnaise together with the cooled liquor and seasoning to taste. When well blended, stir in the turkey meat.
