Turkey Salad With Sauteed Walnuts

Holidaycooking's picture
Turkey Salad With Sauteed Walnuts is a delicious turkey side course recipe that you will enjoy with your family at dinner. I bet the deadly combination of turkey and walnuts will surely enhance your palate.
  Diced cooked turkey 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Chopped celery 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Mayonnaise 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Light cream 2 Tablespoon
  Tarragon vinegar 2 Tablespoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Chopped walnuts 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Lettuce 1 Cup (16 tbs)

Combine 4 cups diced, cooked turkey and 1 cup chopped celery.
Blend 1 cup mayonnaise with 2 tablespoons each light cream and tarragon vinegar, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
Add to turkey, toss lightly to mix well and chill.
Saute 1 cup chopped walnuts in 2 tablespoons butter or margarine until crisp and golden.
Drain thoroughly on paper towels.
Just before serving, stir 3/4 cup of the nuts into the salad.
Arrange salad on lettuce leaves and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup nuts.
Chopped pecans or hazelnuts may be substituted for the walnuts, and of course, chicken (or a mixture of chicken and turkey) may replace the turkey, a fine way to use up leftover holiday poultry.
Cooked poultry, by the way, may be diced and frozen for future use.
If preferred the Turkey Salad can be dressed with a less rich and creamy dressing made by blending 3/4 cup olive or salad oil, 1/4 cup tarragon vinegar, 1 garlic clove, crushed, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon each black pepper, dry mustard, paprika and grated lemon rind.
