Turkey Salad - Use Up Those Leftovers!!

#1 Unread post by JackoftheGreen »

Just wanted to share...

I came up with this recipe a couple of years ago just to get more mileage out of Thanksgiving leftovers, but now we look forward to it almost more than the TG dinner itself.

Creamy Turkey Salad

2C finely chopped turkey (white or dark meat)
4oz (half brick) cream cheese
2/3C Miracle Whip (no guarantees if you use Mayo!)
1C whole fresh cranberries
2T sugar

Roughly chop cranberries, combine all ingredients and blend until smooth.

This is good served any way you'd serve chicken salad, but it's especially good on cranberry wheat bread or crackers. This recipe makes enough salad for two adults to snack on all day. (-:
