Turkey Salad Sandwiches - Daily variety to use up the left-over turkey

A Turkey Salad Sandwich lends itself to numerous possible combinations for sandwich salad recipes.

turkey salad sandwich, how to make a turkey salad sandwich

What I do is make a large batch of the basic simple salad recipe & then, on a daily basis, I add different optional additions to change the taste, until it is all gone.

I also vary the type of bread I use and that alone can make quite a difference to the overall flavour.

It never seems to last as long as I thought it would.



  • 1 cup (240 ml) diced or shredded cooked turkey
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) real mayo
  • salt & pepper to taste


1. combine all ingredients in a small bowl & mix well

2. adjust taste with salt & pepper

Yield 2 thick sandwiches

NOTE This recipe can be doubled, tripled, quadrupled.

Optional Ingredients

  • diced green onion or chives
  • diced sweet pepper
  • cranberry sauce or craisins
  • diced celery
  • bean sprouts
  • cooked peas
  • cooked corn kernels
  • diced cooked vegetables (broccoli, squash, carrots - you can use nearly any cooked veggie you like)

Did you know?

Wild Turkeys are native to North America. It was Spanish Adventurers that first brought turkey back to Europe from Central America and they became domesticated and bred. Not long after they spread throughout Europe as a well domesticated animal.

Turkey is a low-cost, nutritious meat and although we tend to only eat it on Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving, it CAN be eaten anytime of the year.

The wild turkey is still roaming the rural areas of North America and has once again become a hunter's delight. The wild turkey has no white breast meat. It has only dark meat.

Canned turkey can be purchased in most grocery stores and is a quick way to prepare a Turkey Sandwich without roasting a whole turkey first.
