Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cube the turkey and chop the veggies.
  • Stir together the yogurt, mayo, chipotle powder, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes (if adding) and garlic powder.
  • Add the yogurt mixture into the chicken and stir together completely.
  • Add all the veggies and the cilantro and stir until mixed.
  • Adjust for salt...you may have to add a little here.
  • Chill for an hour before serving to marry the flavors.
  • Note: I served my plate tonight with cukes, radishes and some slices of olive bread. Delish!
  • ~~~~
  • * Makes about 6 sammies – could serve with chips of your choice.
  • ~~~~
  • **Or mound chicken salad in the center of a big platter. Serve-with suggestions:
  • ~Toasted bread slices of choice – I use EV olive oil to paint the bread before toasting.
  • ~Pita or flatbread, warmed and torn or cut into pieces
  • ~Lavash
  • ~Pepperoncini peppers (love 'em and always have them on hand)
  • ~Olives (Your fave, but I love stuffed olives w/ garlic, feta, blue cheese and/or almonds)
  • ~Cucumber slices
  • ~Trimmed radishes (can serve them with softened unsalted butter and sea salt...or any assortment of flavored butter).
  • ~Various crackers...I like hearty, thick crackers with seeds
  • ~Seedless red grapes
  • ~Apple slices (I like Granny Smith for their tart crispiness)...or use your fave
  • ~Grape Tomatoes
  • ~Toasted whole almonds or nuts of choice.
  • ~Any cheese you might like...a Brie would work great here
  • ~Cocktails
  • ~Good company
  • Delicious and hearty. Everyone likes making their own plate and digging in. Enjoy.

    Yumm, sounds great! I rarely cook a whole turkey with just the two of us, but I smoke a turkey breast. If there are any left overs, I'll try this next. With the smoked turkey flavor, I think the chipotle would go great. Thanks.

    Love the jalapeno peppers and cilantro the peppers will add a wonderful crunch and should not add much heat as long as you de-seed them this would go great on a grilled toasted hoggie roll with some pepperjack cheese melted on it like a tuna melt but with the turkey salad. Will make this for dinner tonight
    Thanks!!!

    Hi Vickie, you would know it!! It's getting close to lunch here and I should have known better than to step into your kitchen. Now I am starved for this wonderful treat. I want to try all of your suggestions. Not sure which one to try first. Maybe stuffed in a pita with cucumbers and almond stuffed olives?? Great recipe..... High 10
