It's always such a sad day when the turkey runs out that it makes me wonder why I don't cook one more often! We've made Turkey Tetrazzini, Turkey Noodle Soup and Turkey sandwiches. This recipe, however, is by far my favorite: Hot Turkey Salad.
Hot Turkey Salad is what my mom would always make on Thanksgiving evening. While the company was still lingering and many hours had passed since our 1PM dinner, my mom would whip up a batch of this light and satisfying meal.
It bakes for only 10 minutes - just long enough for the cheese to melt, but still leave the celery and almonds crunchy. Serve it with a roll and some cranberry sauce for a perfect, simple supper.
Hot Turkey Salad
1 cup diced onion
2 cups diced celery
3 cups diced turkey
1 cup light Miracle Whip or Mayo
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons mustard
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup Craisins
1 cup crushed potato chips or French's Onions
Mix all ingredients except potato chips/French's Onions together and pour into a glass 9x13 pan. Top with crunchy topping of your choice. Bake @425 degrees for 10 minutes.
