What to do with Thanksgiving leftovers?
That’s one of my biggest challenges every year!
Of course, turkey soup and turkey sandwiches are expected… Yet I also enjoy a good turkey salad. Not only is it versatile, but it keeps well and can be pulled out for lunch, a snack, or dinner!
This Curried Turkey Salad utilizes homemade curried mayonnaise for a fun twist. If the raisins and apples are a bit of a stretch for you, don’t worry, they were for my husband too. 😉 However, when I served this for lunch, he was so delighted that we didn’t have much leftover at all!
Curried Turkey Salad
- 4 cups turkey cooked, chopped
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup apple chopped, any variety
- 1 cup mayonnaise homemade
- 2 tablespoons curry powder
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- sea salt to taste
- pepper to taste
- crispy almonds chopped, for garnish
In a large glass mixing bowl, add turkey, raisins, and apple.
Toss to combine. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise, curry powder, and sour cream.
Pour over turkey mixture and stir well.
Adjust seasoning to taste.
Serve with crispy almonds sprinkled on the top.
For a complete meal, serve over a bed of greens with homemade bread or crackers on the side.
Instead of, or in addition to, raisins and apples try: shredded coconut, dried cranberries, or even a spoonful of chutney on the side.

I love curry turkey/chicken salad! I used to think that I hated all chicken salads. Once I started making my own mayo and added curry I realized how good it could taste! 🙂 I like the idea of adding crispy almonds.

Katie chicken (or turkey) salad is one of my all time favorites. I classify it as comfort food. 🙂 I like it curried, or just about any other way. And yes, homemade mayonnaise makes all the difference in the world.
