Turkey Waldorf Salad

I remember this stuff as a kid - it was a big deal in the 1970's it seems. I don't recall it with any type of protein, however. I added leftover turkey to mine, but you can surely use chicken or even shrimp!
Leftover turkey is already cooked, so it couldn't be easier to add to soups, stews and sandwiches. Salads are great with cooked turkey and something lighter is nice after a round heavy turkey dinners. Cooked and cubed turkey is a quick add to many salads -- including my favorite, the Turkey Waldorf Salad. I also swapped out raisins for dried cranberries and replaced mayo with protein rich Greek yogurt.

Turkey Waldorf Salad
Serves 4 - 6


2 cups diced cooked turkey
2 cups diced apples
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup diced celery
1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/3 Tablespoon Kosher salt or more to taste


1. Combine apples with lemon juice.
2. Add remaining ingredients and blend well.
3. Chill until serving time or serve right away. Does not keep well.
