Cranberry Turkey Salad on Croissants

Happy Thanksgiving. I have so many great turkey leftover recipes that I decided to post on Thanksgiving. I’ve got another delicious turkey leftover recipe for you today.  If you have a few cups of turkey leftover and at least a half cup of cranberry sauce you are in luck! Just over the past few years I’ve started to enjoy chicken salad. So it occurred to me that I should use up my leftover turkey and cranberry sauce to make this cranberry turkey salad on croissants. I had thought about making the turkey salad sans the cranberry sauce and slathering the cranberry sauce directly on the croissant. But I really wanted to taste the cranberry sauce through out. I used my cranberry mango sauce for this recipe. but you can use any cranberry sauce. I don’t think that the cranberry jelly would work for this recipe. In that case you would want to just add a slice of the cranberry sauce to the croissant and then pile on the turkey salad. I used half of a honey crisp apple to give it extra sweetness and crunch plus a stalk of minced celery.

Cranberry Turkey Salad on CroissantsWith just a few ingredients you can transform your leftovers into a magical new meal. These luxurious croissant sandwiches make for an ideal lunch or even a perfect dinner paired with a soup or salad (or both). Your family and friends will not even realize they are eating leftovers.
