Utilize leftover roasted turkey by making this Cranberry Pecan Turkey Salad using sweet dried cranberries and rich, buttery pecans.
I know. It's technically not even Halloween and here I am sharing a leftover turkey recipe. Well, you have to start thinking about these things sooner or later so why not start now?
Being a food blogger means that my family and I generally eat the recipes I create 2-3 weeks before I share them here on the blog for all of you.
It's just the way it goes so that I gives me time to edit the photos and write the post. So when I recently made a new roasted turkey to share next month for Thanksgiving, I had a lot of leftover turkey and made this Cranberry Pecan Turkey Salad.
I generally don't like to eat any meat leftover as it was served the first time. Instead I usually repurpose it into something else. Turkey along with chicken is one of those leftovers that are so versatile, that I generally make either a salad or soup.Utilize leftover roasted turkey by making this Cranberry Pecan Turkey Salad using sweet dried cranberries and rich, buttery pecans.
