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

Directions

  • 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.
