Tired of eating leftover Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey several days in a row? This delicious turkey salad recipe transforms your leftover turkey into something amazing and totally different!
No matter how awesome your Thanksgiving turkey is, eating leftovers gets boring pretty quickly. I can handle eating leftover turkey the next day, but then totally get burned out on that same old stuff. My favorite way of transforming turkey leftovers into something new is the leftover turkey salad. It’s basically like a classic chicken salad, but made with turkey meat!
Turkey salad is so creamy, with eggs and zesty onions, it tastes nothing like the plain turkey, so it doesn’t even feel like you are eating turkey at all! What a welcome break from the holiday leftovers, it feels like you are eating something totally different and not wasting any leftover turkey!
There are several ways to serve the turkey salad. You can serve it on buns to make turkey salad sandwiches, on long sub rolls to make the subs, on romaine leaves to make lettuce wraps, or just in a plain old bowl as a main dish salad! This leftover turkey salad is also perfect on croissants – that would be an awesome post-holiday brunch dish!
Making this delicious turkey salad is super easy and will take you less than 15 minutes! This recipe uses 4 simple ingredients: leftover turkey, hard-boiled eggs, onion and mayo.
All you need to do is chop the turkey, eggs and onion, and mix with mayo until desired creamy consistency. You can also add your favorite spices to taste, I love this salad with a bit of sweet paprika!
