Almond Turkey Salad - A recipe to use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey!

I am happy to say I have zero leftover turkey from Thanksgiving!  Normally we do, and after 1 day of leftovers, I pop it into the freezer to take out a week or so later.  This year we were not entertaining a group, so I searched for the smallest actual whole turkey I could find.  After sending home leftovers for 3, and 2 meals for ourselves, it's gone.  No leftovers for us!

But if you have leftovers, how about this 'chicken' salad - made with turkey!

Almond Turkey Salad

3 c cubed cooked leftover turkey
1 c celery
¼ c blanched almonds, toasted
2 or 3 hard cooked eggs
2 T sliced green onion
salt and pepper to taste
½ c mayonnaise
2 T lemon juice

Combine turkey, celery, almonds, eggs and onion. Season with salt and pepper. Combine mayonnaise and lemon juice. Add to turkey. Toss lightly. Chill and serve on lettuce. Print Friendly and PDF
