We had smoked a turkey and used our leftovers. The smoked meat upped the anty! We also used fresh chives as I did not have the onions on hand. As I am not a fan of "sweet" I left out the sugar but used rice vinagar which is naturally sweeter. This would make a great party spread and seems to be very versitile. Read More

I thought this tuned out rather nice considering I had no cider vinegar(used regular instead)or dijon mustard. To start, I left out the red bell pepper because I don't care for it very much & I only used 1 celery stalk as my husband doesn't really care for it. In place of the dijon mustard, I substituted 2 teaspoon regular mustard & 4 teaspoons more of regular vinegar + the very smallest of horseradish. I also 2 tablespoons of sandwich spread & 1 chopped boiled egg. Read More

This is delicious! I used more than 3/4 lb leftover turkey (incidently this is great for chicken too). I coarsely chopped the turkey. I hand chopped the celery, fine, I finely minced red onion(no green on hand). To my mayo I added a small amount of spicy brown mustard, a dash or two of liquid smoke because GilDavid is right the smoke taste sings! The only thing added that was processed in the food processor was a tiny bit of my sofrito. (This way you can sneak in bell pepper and onion etc. on those that do not care for it)! Sofrito can be used any any dish or food where you would use bell peppers. I used Mrs. Dash in place of salt, no sweetner, just a dash of rice vinegar. If you want to play with sofrito...you place in your food processor I good sized onion cut in medium pieces. 1 red bell pepper and 1 green bell pepper , five med to large cloves of garlic smashed well, 1 big bunch of cilantro. I chop the stems of the cilantro into about 1" pieces or they'll wrap around the chopper. I also add the items one food at a time to make sure that they all get processed fine. Do not have water on any of your foods as it will make it too runny. Place in large jar in fridge and use in cooking according to taste. It makes almost a quart. I go through a batch a month minimum. Don't taste it alone, it's very strong & bitter but in food it's great! I do not wash the cilantro ahead of time, they spray it every few min. at the grocery store. Try it you'll like it! Read More

Yum! I used a small red onion as I had no green onions. This went together very easily. I couldn't wait 8 hours for full flavor meld but waiting only 10 minutes it was delicious. I think this would be an excellent post-Thanksgiving recipe. Thanks! Read More

OK I have used this site for years but so far I have not rated anything until now that is. I don't particularly care for these kind of salads but I had a lot of turkey left over so I gave it a try (mainly because it didn't call for eggs!). This is more than a keeper it's EXCELLENT! I will make it again and again. I made it pretty much the same but I didn't use red peppers and I didn't blend mine. I like it a little chunky. I also added about a tbsp. mor of the mustard and also added about a tsp. of cayenne pepper and some louisiana roasted garlic hot sauce for some kick! You have to try this recipe it is very tasty! Thank you for posting an truly awesome recipe! Read More
