I bought some dried cherries at Costco. They are delicious. I knew if I didn't make something with them, I'd eat the whole bag. So what better to do than to make my favorite. Chicken salad!
In this case, turkey salad. I still had a ton of 10 oz. bags of turkey leftover from the last turkey that went into the oven. So turkey salad it was.
My turkey was a bit dry so I think I ended up throwing in a couple of tablespoons of sour cream to moisten it more. I like goopy chicken salad anyways so that worked out well and it tasted awesome.
The cherries gave it a nice tart twist and the apple added to the crunch. It was delicious!
Turkey Salad Wraps with Cherries Recipe
10 oz. shredded cooked turkey breast
1 cup chopped apple
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped cucumbers
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
1/4 cup dried cherries
1 (6 oz) plain greek yogurt
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. hot pepper sauce (to taste)
Salt and pepper
In a large bowl, combine turkey, apple, celery, cucumber, onions, walnuts and cherries. In a small bowl, stir together yogurt, lemon juice, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Add the yogurt mixture to the turkey mixture and stir until well mixed.
Serve on whole wheat tortillas or lettuce as lettuce wraps.
I didn't write down how many tortilla wraps I got out of this. I think I got 5. They were very hearty and low calorie!
