Turkey Waldorf Salad

Something I've been wondering: Could I substitute turkey and cranberries for the chicken and raisins in my (almost) famous chicken salad recipe I so often serve at tea? Yes, I am pleased to report! So today we'll be eating up some of yesterday's leftover turkey in ...

Turkey Waldorf Salad

Turkey leftovers equivalent to 2 boneless chicken breasts
1 cup grapes, chopped in half
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup dried cranberries (instead of raisins)
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients well and chill, preferably overnight.

And at the last minute, I decided that instead of making a traditional cranberry sauce for our Thanksgiving meal, I'd try the recipe I found in a magazine for Cranberry-Pineapple Minis, a Jell-O fruit salady thing that I really, really liked! Made in cupcake liners, these would be a perfect item for a tea plate, perhaps even in mini-cupcake size. Interested? You can find the recipe here.

You know Tammy, I'm with you in that I do *not* go shopping the day after Thanksgiving. They'd have to be giving away antique china tea sets (or maybe tea ROOMS) for me to get out of bed at 4 a.m. and fight for a place in line with the other crazy shoppers!
