Cape Cod Turkey Salad

Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars
20

"Every year when we visit friends on Cape Cod we celebrate Thanksgiving in July. I incorporated some of the fresh herbs from my friend's garden and came up with this recipe as a way to use up leftover turkey. Serve the salad on croissants, crusty rolls, or a bed of lettuce. A lighter version can be made using reduced fat mayonnaise and sour cream."

Great recipe- though I did change it a bit to resemble a cape cod salad from Costco. I didnt add parsley or rosemary. I added some honey and used pecans instead of walnuts. It tastes great!

I've made this twice without the rosemary just because I didn't have it. We both love it.

I don't use the sour cream or rosemary, but I also add at least 1 cup of grapes halved and 2 apples. Sometimes I add a tbsp of red onion.
