Looking for something to do with some of that leftover turkey from Thanksgiving? Look no further than this healthy turkey salad! Colorful, tangy and sweet and filled with fruits, it will brighten any sandwich, salad or cracker but not leave you feeling like you just ate (and gained) Thanksgiving once again. I am all for Thanksgiving leftovers but by the third time I have eaten them, I need something new. The ingredients in this turkey salad are ones that you should already have on hand.
This recipe is an adaption of about three different chicken salad recipes. As I have stated many times before, I loathe mayo so that was the first ingredient to go. What left is the combination of the best things from each of the recipes. Don’t care for Greek Yogurt? You can add the mayo back in. Just be aware it no longer is healthier. Lots of different fruits can be added if you don’t care for apples or cranberries. Think grapes and raisins. Same goes for the nuts. Pecans, walnuts or hazelnuts can be substutited or even left out all together.
I recommend making this salad either in the morning or the night before. You are going to want some time for the flavors to “mingle.” It’s great to out out with dinner rolls for people to snack one throughout the day or if they need something quick to grab.
