Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Salad recipe

Every Thanksgiving we always make this simple, but delicious Turkey Salad because like everyone else, we have SO MUCH leftover turkey!  It’s one of those simple sandwich spreads that is comforting and so easy to make.  I bet even after you cook the big meal, you’ll have all the ingredients!  I think it tastes so much better on croissants, but you could definitely use whatever bread you have on hand.  Have leftover dinner rolls?!  That would make an amazing choice to use!  You could even make this with leftover chicken!  :)  ENJOY!

  • 3 and 1/2 c cooked turkey
  • 1 c celery, diced

  • 1/2-3/4 c mayonnaise
  • pepper, to taste



Toss all ingredients together, be careful with the mayo -- only add a little at a time as you can always add more later if it's not enough.
