Curry Turkey Salad Sliders


Happy post-Thanksgiving eating, everyone. Yes, it’s time  for leftovers and a trip to the gym. 🙂

But first a HUGE congratulations to WSU for wining the Apple Cup yesterday. After 8 straight loses, the season ended on a positive note and it was just what we needed to hold us over until next year. GO COUGS!

Today is another really big college football day with a bunch of major rivalry games happening. We’ll be watching the Oregon vs Oregon State game for sure, and we’ll also be eating these delicious Curry Turkey Salad Sliders – one of my favorite ways to use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey.

How about you? Any turkey leftovers in your fridge?

I talked to Joy earlier and she’s made a Turkey Chowder that sounds amazing. What will you be making?

Serves: 8 sliders
A great way to use up leftover holiday turkey. If hazelnuts are not available, use another nut of your choice, such as almonds, walnuts or pecans.
  • 1 cup diced turkey
  • 2/3 cup diced Honeycrisp Apple
  • 1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 1 Tbsp. sweet yellow onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 to 2 tsp. curry powder (depending on your taste)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 8 slider rolls
  1. Combine the turkey, apple, hazelnuts, celery, parsley and onion in a medium bowl. Toss to combine.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise, cider vinegar and curry powder. Mix well.
  3. Stir the mayonnaise into the turkey mixture and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Serve on slider rolls with mayonnaise, sliced apples and lettuce if desired.

    In all my leftover research and brainstorming, i never once thought to make a curried turkey salad! what a fabulous way to use the leftover buns and turkey (and the inevitable celery/onion/apple leftover combination we always have hanging out in the fridge due to over-purchasing). i love it! this sounds perfect today, as I think i’ve hit a wall in terms of normal thanksgiving leftovers.
