I used the following ingredients for the Leftover Turkey Salad: Leftover turkey (of course!), celery, sweet relish, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, sugar, and Cider vinegar.
To make the Leftover Turkey Salad, I started by putting the turkey, celery, and sweet relish in my food processor fitted with a steel blade, and pulse processed the mixture 8 or 10 times to produce a finer chop.
Then, I transferred the mixture to a medium-sized bowl and added the mayonnaise and mustard. I stirred the mixture with a wooden spoon to fully incorporate the ingredients.
Finally, I added the sugar and Cider vinegar, and gave the mixture one last stir to make sure everything was well mixed.
I covered it and put it in the refrigerator to cool completely.
I served some of the Leftover Turkey Salad with Ritz crackers, and used some of it stuffed in pita bread with with lettuce and tomato. The Master Taste Tester’s favorite was the trio of the Leftover Turkey Salad, my Southern Style Potato Salad with a Twist, and Cucumber Dill Salad. You’re in for a delicious treat however you decide to serve it. Yum!
