Leftover Turkey Salad Sandwich

http://greenlitebites.com/2011/11/25/leftover-turkey-salad-sandwich/

It’s the day after Thanksgiving and my refrigerator ROCKS! I have leftover turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, roasted Brussels Sprouts, a bunch of veggies and tons of miscellaneous fun stuff.

I’ve already made stock from the bones (like this) and my first batch of soup, Classic Turkey Noodle. I hope to share a few more ideas using the leftover turkey. Leftover Turkey Salad SandwichI’m thinking a fun series on turkey sandwiches or something, but I’m not making any promises. I still have a house full of Grandparents and a lot of family time to soak up. :)

In the meantime here’s the sandwich I made today. Oh! And sorry for the images, there’s no light after 5PM. It’s killing me!

  • 2oz leftover turkey (or chicken)
  • 2 tbsp fat free yogurt
  • 4 carrot sticks diced
  • 4 slices of cucumber diced
  • 10g dried cranberries
  • 1/8 tsp ground sage
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • pinch of kosher salt and pepper

Place all ingredients in a bowl…

2oz leftover turkey (or chicken)  2 tbsp fat free yogurt 4 carrot sticks diced 4 slices of cucumber diced 10g dried cranberries 1/8 tsp ground sage 1/8 tsp onion powder pinch of kosher salt and pepper - step 1

Mix well.

Serve on a whole grain English muffin with some fresh greens. I added a handful of carrot sticks, my favorite side for adding some crunch.

Here’s the nutritional information for the salad only in case you decide to use it differently.

    I really like the idea of replacing mayo with fat free yogurt. I’ve tried fat free/dairy free yogurt making a red pepper dip/spread. It came out remarkable and it still had that creamy consistency we all look for.
