Thanksgiving leftovers? What's your fave?

SSqwerty | Nov 12, 200803:42 PM     34

I have a whole file of turkey and other recipes for using up the meal....sometimes I wait all year for these. They involve turkey chili, fancy turkey sandwiches, enchiladas and my own self-invented
version of the Hot Brown sandwich from Kentucky which is really good. (Apologies to everyone in Kentucky because this isn't authentic AT ALL.)

My favorite by far, and the one I wait for every year is:

TURKEY WALDORF SALAD
2/3 c. mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 c. diced cooked turkey or chicken
2 red apples, cored and diced
2/3 c. sliced celery
1/2 c. chopped walnuts (make sure they’re fresh)
pinch of cinnamon
small handful of dried cranberries (Craisins)

In large bowl combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add turkey, apples, cinnamon and craisins and celery. Toss to coat well. Cover and chill.

Serve on a beautiful lettuce leaf. Just before serving sprinkle with walnuts.

NOW THEN. WHAT'S YOURS?
