YUM YUM YUM.
I’ve said it a gazillion times, but turkey is definitely not my favorite part of Thanksgiving. Appetizers and casseroles and wine are. Clearly.
I think that’s because turkey can be underwhelming, or dry, and it DEFINITELY doesn’t hold up as well in terms of leftovers like, say, some kind of buttery cheesy casserole does. Leftover turkey can be chewy and tough and just bland, but I’m NOT here to celebrate food waste, ever. So we had to do something wonderful with leftover turkey.
Add mayo, obviously was the answer. This turkey salad is so different from roast turkey from Thanksgiving day, and the addition of cranberries livens up the flavor for such a fun different twist. This would be so yummy for a brunch sometime this weekend, or on crackers/with greens for lunch or a snack. Plus: it’s pink!…
