Leftover Turkey Salad Recipe

Chip up and cut the leftover turkey meat into small bite size pieces or smaller. The smaller the cut for this salad is the way our family likes it. I’m not really sure of the amount in cups, but generally the leftover turkey meat is enough. Roughly guessing, I would say about 3 to 4 cups of turkey meat for this salad. After chipping up turkey meat, cover and set aside in a large mixing bowl to which you will add the other ingredients as you prepare them.

5 or 6 boiled and diced eggs. You can add more or reduce this amount according to your preferences. Place eggs in bowl with the leftover turkey meat.

2 large diced dill pickles. We cut dice just about everything for meat salads. Place diced pickles in bowl.

Add 2 or 3 large dollops of mayonnaise and just a small amount of prepared mustard. Add a dash of celery seed and a dash of dill seed, salt and pepper to taste and then toss until ingredients are thoroughly mixed.

You can eat it as it is with bread to make a turkey salad sandwich; it is good spread on crackers or even eating by itself as a small snack.
