turkey salad roll-ups

So….how was your turkey day??!?

I have to say, yesterday was pretty darn awesome. My mom and I went to a power yoga class in the morning then she “forced” me to sit outside and read for most of the afternoon while she roasted cornish hens with apricot honey glaze, roasted brussels sprouts and wild rice casserole. We drank these margaritas and I made Amy’s chocolate pecan bourbon pie for dessert. Then, my parents rolled me down to the Savannah airport and stuck me on a plane headed West.

I know most of you are either at the gym or at the mall so I’ll keep this post short. I wanted to share with you a super quick and easy Black Friday lunch idea!

Make a delicious cold turkey salad with only a few ingredients and roll it up with leftover cranberry sauce in a whole wheat wrap! It’s crazy delicious and takes only about four minutes to throw together.

Enjoy your holiday weekend!! I’m off to blast Christmas music and watch Elf for the 994th time.

Here’s the link to the recipe on PBS Food—enjoy!

    Sounds like a great way to use up leftover turkey! I’m glad you had a great Thanksgiving Jenna, and have fun with those Christmas movies – I’m doing the same this weekend and the tree is going up!

    I’ve never tried the TJ’s mayo. I love love all their condiments. But for some reason, have yet to try the mayo. Will do it.

    Glad you’re putting the leftovers to good use!

    this = my dinner πŸ™‚ I just got back from the grocery store with whole wheat wraps in my bag and the intention of making something very similar to this for dinner. I’m all about repurposing leftovers today!

    Add mozarella and avocado to that and it would be lovely. Love whole grain wraps!

    I used your idea for lunch today, subbing plain Greek yogurt for the mayo- it was so delicious and satisfying. It was so good, I was tempted to hoard ALL the leftover turkey for myself!

    I make these types of sandwiches a lot–using rotisserie chicken when I’m lazy and dried cranberries when I don’t have leftovers. A great addition is wasabi mayo from Trader Joe’s. It’s not low-cal but you don’t need much to add some zing. I seriously love this stuff. Also, I don’t really like cold tortillas so I broil the it first, maybe just maybe with some cheese on it. And I usually throw in some walnuts or slivered almonds to add crunch. My tweaks make the sammy more caloric but it will rock your world!
