This Summer Turkey Salad is good with chicken breast or turkey breast – whatever you have handy. We happen to stock up at Costco, so we always have some in the freezer!
Toss together the easy ingredients and you have a quick, refreshing and tasty lunch.
I didn’t get a very good photo of the turkey salad because we ate it as soon as I made it. I’ll get some better photos in the future for you.
This uses leftover turkey (or chicken) and I really like that. Sometimes cooked poultry can sit in the fridge and eventually get thrown away.
Summer Turkey Salad is very versatile. Don’t like pecans, leave them out or add almonds. Don’t like Miracle Whip? Use all mayonnaise. Use cranberries instead of dried cherries – your choice!
- ½ lb turkey breast, chopped
- 1/4 C mayonnaise
- ¼ C Miracle Whip salad dressing
- 1/4 C dried cherries, coarsely chopped
- ¼ C pecans, coarsely chopped
- 1 tbsp finely chopped onion
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Combine all ingredients. Adjust mayonnaise and salad dressing to your tastes.
- I sometimes add celery for more crunch.
- Eat on lettuce or on a croissant as a sandwich.
Tips and Stuff :
Add mayonnaise a spoonful at a time to make sure the salad is the consistency you like.
Also, still tastes great if you prefer only mayonnaise or only Miracle Whip.
For more of a kick, add 1/8 tsp of onion or garlic powder. A little chopped basil is nice, too!
