Using Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey to Make a Delicious Harvest Turkey Salad




Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe Idea – Harvest Turkey Salad

Do you still have leftover Thanksgiving turkey sitting in the refrigerator waiting to be used in a recipe?  I used half of my leftovers to make a turkey noodle soup with carrots, celery, and homemade broth, and the other half of the turkey will be used to make this yummy harvest turkey salad.  It’s full of ingredients I already have on hand in my pantry and fridge, which is the best kind of recipe!  You simply mix cooked turkey with dried cranberries, onions, pecans, fresh apples and create a simple dressing with Greek yogurt and mayonnaise.  It’s super easy to throw together and a great way to use up that leftover turkey!

Harvest Turkey Salad Recipe


  • 2 cups chopped cooked turkey
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 2 Tbs dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, toasted
  • 1/4 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
  • 2 cups chopped apples (green or red apples)
  • 1 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbs light mayonnaise
  • Dash sugar


1. In bowl, combine turkey, onion, cranberries, walnuts or pecans, and feta cheese. Toss chopped apples with lemon juice and add to turkey mixture.

2. In small bowl, mix together yogurt, mayonnaise, and sugar. Carefully mix with turkey mixture.

Serve as is, or over bibb lettuce or mixed greens for a satisfying lunch or dinner salad idea.  You can also serve as a sandwich over a toasted focaccia bread.
