Fresh Turkey Salad Sandwiches
Ever wonder what to do with the leftovers from Thanksgiving? Usually by the third night, I can not handle anymore of the reheating. But, this is a whole new fresh way to get rid of the scraps. I always have leftover turkey, celery and cranberries from a turkey dinner. And there is never a time in our house when we don't have apples and grapes. So, this one is our new favorite leftover turkey dinner.
2-3 cups of cooked chopped turkey breasts (I just used leftovers)
1/3 cup of real mayo
1/4 tsp. of dried basil
juice from 1/2 of a lemon (remember to roll the lemon on the counter top w/ the palm of your hand to loosen the juices prior to cutting/ squeezing)
3 slices of a granny smith apple (diced)
1 slice of a red onion (diced)
2 ribs of celery (sliced)
a handful of dried cranberries
handful of red grapes (rinsed, then sliced in 1/2)
Romaine lettuce leaves
wheat sandwich rolls
-Combine the first nine ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Split rolls and stuff with turkey salad and some lettuce. Makes 4 sandwiches. Enjoy!
