Turkey and chicken salad sandwiches are fabulous in my books. I have made hundreds of chicken and turkey salad sandwiches using various ingredients and this one is a favourite of mine especially if you use fresh crop apples. Add some lettuce, arugula or mizuna and you’ll have a great sandwich!
Makes 4 or 5 Sandwiches
2 cups diced cooked turkey or chicken
½ cup, combined, finely diced celery & unpeeled apple
¼ cup snipped chives (or to taste), or 2 Tbsp. finely chopped green onion
1 Tbsp. each chopped fresh dill & parsley
1 tsp. or more to taste, finely chopped fresh sage
1/3 cup toasted chopped pecans or walnuts
¼ cup chopped dried cranberries
½ cup mayonnaise (light is fine, you could substitute a bit of sour cream for some of the mayo)
1 ½ tsp. fresh lemon juice
Salt & pepper to taste
Place all ingredients except mayo & lemon juice in a bowl. Combine the mayonnaise & lemon juice & add to the turkey or chicken stirring well. Spread your bread of choice with some butter, pile on the filling, top with greens of your choice and enjoy!
