Even after sending everyone home with doggie bags, there’s still quite a bit of turkey leftover. The carcass was turned into Turkey Rice soup, and the rest of the turkey was cut up and bagged. With all the sides gone, it was time to do something different with the turkey and it occurred to me that a salad would be an easy and delicious way to use some of it up. Served tonight with tomato bisque soup, the husband said it was “better than Panera’s.”
2 cups diced turkey
1 cup red seedless grapes
½ cup glazed walnut pieces
2/3 cup mayonnaise
Cut grapes in half. Mix together all ingredients and pile onto fresh, soft rolls.
Like the chicken salad, you can vary this by using different nuts, or substituting dried cranberries or raisins, or even chopped up apples or pears for the seedless grapes. You can add diced celery, curry powder or other seasonings. This is a very versatile and forgiving salad!
