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.
