Leftover Turkey Salad

If you are getting tired of leftover thanksgiving turkey sandwiches, try this healthy and simple salad. This is a great way to use up leftover turkey or even chicken.  The flavors really come together in this delicious salad.   This can be enjoyed on a bed of lettuce, in a wrap or in a sandwich.

Chop up a 1/2 cup of Craisins ( or raisins), 1/2 cup chopped pecans, and one peeled and diced apple.

Combine the chopped turkey and mayonnaise.  Fold in the remaining ingredients.  Refrigerate for at least two hours for flavors to combine.

Enjoy on a bed of lettuce or in a wrap or sandwich.

4 cups cooked turkey, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries (Craisins)
1 medium apple, cored and diced
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 lemon, juiced

In a medium bowl, combine the chopped turkey, pecans, dried cranberries, apple, mayonnaise, salt and lemon juice.  Mix well.  Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
