Make a delicious Turkey Salad Sandwich with leftover Thanksgiving turkey!
We’ve got another recipe for you today that uses up Thanksgiving turkey leftovers in a very delicious way – and it’s our recipe for a simple and super flavorful Turkey Salad Sandwich!
This turkey salad sandwich is reminiscent of our Copycat Willow Tree Chicken Salad (one of the most popular recipes on A Family Feast) – but we’ve changed up the spices and the proportion of ingredients just a bit in order to really complement the flavor of the turkey!
Our not so secret ingredients for making this the perfect turkey salad sandwich is a little bit of Bell’s poultry seasoning, plus a touch of brown sugar in the mix, along with minced celery, onion, celery salt and mayonnaise. We also like using a mix of the dark and white turkey meat – but whatever leftovers you have are fine!
Serve your turkey salad between slices of crusty bread. We sometimes also spread a little bit of leftover cranberry sauce along with the turkey salad on our sandwich for a sweet and spicy contrast of flavors. (But that is completely optional.) Enjoy!

- Serve on crusty bread with lettuce and tomato, and if desired cranberry sauce
