Personally, I love any leftover turkey or even chicken for delicious recipes like this turkey salad. This recipe totally is the answer to the ‘What should I do with all this leftover turkey?’ question. Thanksgiving is the perfect time to whip this recipe up.

It’s always the day after when you’ve spent the whole previous day cooking and the night shopping that the last thing you want to do is cook more food. So pull out that left over turkey, throw in a few ingredients and serve this on leftover rolls, croissants, crackers or even on lettuce as a salad.

Can I freeze Turkey Salad?

The answer is, yes, but I wouldn’t. The mayo tends to get watery when frozen. If you are thinking you want this for a later date, I would freeze the chopped turkey and then they day before you want to make this salad, place the turkey in the fridge to thaw and then throw the salad together when you are ready to serve it.
