I hope you all had a wonderful holiday last weekend! Mine was great, and it put me back in touch with some of the many things I have to be thankful for: spending time with my family, my friends, and of course, good food and wine!
Of course, all of the yummy leftovers from dinner on Thursday were also a highlight, and I was very excited to try this turkey leftovers recipe submitted by one of our blog readers. The recipe is for Curried Turkey Salad, and it is very, very delicious.
To make this curried turkey salad, all you need is leftover turkey (about 2 cups of white meat, chopped), four stalks of celery, one green onion bunch (chopped, with only the green pieces included), one or one and a half teaspoons of curry powder, and some mayo!
It can be eaten either in sandwich form on a croissant, or wrapped up in bib lettuce for a crunchier, healthier snack. I went with the sandwich version, because I can never resist a croissant.
To put this salad together, just chop the celery, green onions, and turkey, and throw them all together .
Then you just add as much mayo as you like. I added about 1/3 cup, but depending on how much mayo you like you might want to add a little less or a little more.
Last step: toss in the curry powder!
Pair with a fruity white, such as our Tepusquet Viognier, for instant pairing yumminess.
Thank you so much to our submitter for sharing this easy and delicious recipe!
