Turkey Salad

Turkey Salad


What all the cool kids are putting between those bread slices the day after Thanksgiving. I actually like this better than roast bird.

Turkey Salad

  • 1 pound roasted turkey meat (cubed)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 small lemon (freshly squeezed)
  • 2 stalks celery (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 small red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup pecans (toasted and roughly chopped)
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries (roughly chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh sage (chiffonade)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • black pepper (freshly ground, to taste)
  1. Combine everything in a large airtight container. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

    I’ve tried different browsers none of which show the actual recipe for Turkey Salad along with a few other recipes I have tried to view. Suggestions anyone?

      It is your kitchen so you can do as you wish. USDA recommendation would be to eat it today or toss it – 4 days is max for leftover poultry consumption.

    A bit like coronation chicken (also called Jubilee chicken) which has curry powder added to the Mayo. like yours the more nice extras added the bigger the Jubilee
