Make a delicious Turkey Salad Sandwich with leftover Thanksgiving turkey!

Turkey Salad Sandwich

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!

Turkey Salad Sandwich

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!

Served 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!
