Cajun Fried Turkey Salad

Fried Turkey has become a tradition in many homes over the last several years and our home is no exception. The crispy and spicy flavor of this treat is equally as tasty the day after Thanksgiving when you make it into a salad.


2 1/2-3 lbs. fried turkey meat, skinned, boned and chopped

3 stalks celery, rinsed, and chopped fine

2 apples, skinned, cored and chopped fine

1/2 lb pecan halves, roasted in oven at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, cooled, then coarsely chopped

1 C Mayonnaise

1 T Texas Gourmet “Sweet Chipotle Season All”

2 Green onions, rinsed and diced


Mix mayonnaise & Sweet Chipotle Season All together in a bowl, then place in refrigerator.

In a large bowl combine turkey meat, celery, green onions, apples and pecans. Stir to mix.

Add Chipotle mayonnaise mixture, and stir until well blended together. Chill, serve as a sandwich or over lettuce as a salad!

Bon appétit!
