Leftover Turkey and Cranberry Sauce Salad Recipe

Posted on


3 cups leftover cooked turkey, shredded*

2 stalks celery, chopped

2 green onions, chopped (whites and light green only)

1/3 cup walnuts (optional: toasted)

1/2 cup mayonnaise**

1/3 cup cranberry sauce

1 garlic clove, minced

1/8 tsp paprika

salt and pepper, to taste

splash lemon juice


  1. In a large bowl combine turkey, celery, onions and walnuts.
  2. Add in mayonnaise, cranberry sauce, garlic, spices and lemon juice.
  3. Serve on bread or on a salad.
  4. Note: the flavours get even better as it sits so I recommend making this in the morning and letting it sit for a few hours, but if not it’s still delish!


Feel free to sub in leftover chicken. *Greek yogurt works great too if you don’t have or like mayonnaise
