Easy Turkey Salad Recipe

Here is one of my favorite sandwich spreads and a delicious way to use that mountain of left-over turkey from Thanksgiving Dinner. This recipe is a lighter version of the salad you can get in the market and is easy on the waistline.

You will need:

· 1-2 pounds shredded left-over turkey

· 1/2 cup dried cranberries

· 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

· 1/2 cup finely diced celery

· 1/2 tsp dried mint leaves

· 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup light salad dressing ( I prefer Hellman’s)

To shred the turkey I put it into the food processor and pulse it several times to get to the right consistency. Next, put the turkey and other ingredients into a mixing bowl and fold the salad dressing in until the mixture is spreadable. Now you are ready to make sandwiches on the bread of your choice and have a nice lunch.

Serving Suggestions

· Turkey salad on mini croissants with a little feta cheese makes a nice snack or brunch item,

· Try using small savory tortillas like tomato basil or garlic to make turkey salad wraps

· Serve it on dark rye toast with cheese and a good wine for a romantic snack with your lover
