Turkey Salad

If you are like me, you probably bought a big turkey for your thanksgiving meal. I always do and I turn the leftover turkey into turkey salad.

Here's a great recipe that I use every time.

  • 2 cups cooked turkey breast, cubed
  • 1 large red apple, cored and cut into small pieces
  • 1 orange peeled and segmented (or use a small can of mandarin oranges)
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 3 tablespoons walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 1/2 cup of chopped onions
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Mayonnaise, to taste

  • In a mixing bowl, combine turkey, apple pieces, cranberries, orange, walnuts, celery and onions.
  • Mixing in mayonnaise to taste and season with salt and pepper.

  • You can add poultry seasoning to the recipe to give it a hint of sage.
  • Mayonnaise can be added, but not taken out. If you like a "wet" salad, add more mayonnaise. "Dry" is less.
  • Use toasted multi-grain bread and use the leftover cranberry sauce as additional dressing if you wish.
