Ingredients

Slices of toasted bread or some crackers
2 to 3 cups of turkey breast, cubed
1 to 2 shallots, finely diced
2 to 3 celery stalks and leaves, finely diced
1/2 cup of mayonnaise- add more or less to taste
1 1/2 handfuls of unsalted dry toasted pecan pieces (T.J.'s has some for cheap but if your in Texas you can probably find some laying around- sliced toasted almonds would be good too)
1/4 to 1/2 cup of leftover cranberries (that you cooked for thanksgiving- don't use that weird gelatinous canned stuff) and if you don't have any of this you can use a couple handfuls of fresh grapes, quartered
and seasonings as follows:
pinch garlic powder
pinch of Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning (if you have it-optional)
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning or other all-purpose poultry and seafood seasoning
1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons Morton & Bassett Curry Powder
(their's is my favorite curry and if you can't find it then find one that has the most similar blend- M&B's contains turmeric, fenugreek, coriander, mustard flour, cumin, gingerroot, black pepper, allspice, cayenne, and fennel)
pinch of kosher salt and fresh ground pepper


Mix all together, making sure that the mayo has an even coat over everything. You can also use yogurt for a lower fat alternative to mayo.


Serve in sandwiches or on top of crackers!

Notes

This is my original idea. I usually use this recipe to make chicken salad. To make the chicken salad I use any leftover chicken breast or canned chicken from Trader Joes and I use grapes, quartered. We just had our Thanksgiving early on Saturday and I have all this leftover turkey so I figured this would be a good solution.

slices of toasted bread or some crackers

2 to 3 cups of turkey breast, cubed

1 to 2 shallots, finely diced

2 to 3 celery stalks and leaves, finely diced
