Tuesday 9th October 2018. Feisty foodie Sara and how to deal with leftovers.

October 9, 2018


It is Tuesday so in the last hour today we have Feisty Foodie Sara from Solomon’s Deli. It is the time of year with the different celebrations where we find ourselves confronted with left over Turkey, veggies etc. So here are some ideas of how to deal with them!

Also a couple of recipe ideas for you:

Turkey Waldorf Salad

2 cups shredded leftover turkey meat

2 stalks celery, sliced

1/2 cup celery leaves, coarsely chopped, plus more whole leaves for garnish

1 crisp apple, such as Gala or Macintosh, cored and chopped

1 cup red seedless grapes, halved

1/2 cup pecans, toasted, and coarsely chopped

1/2 cup non-fat yogurt

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 teaspoon honey

1/4 teaspoon salt, plus more as needed

1 small celery root, peeled and cut into matchsticks

Freshly ground black pepper

  1. In a large bowl, gently toss the turkey, celery, celery leaves, apple, grapes, and pecans until combined. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, mayonnaise, honey, and 1/4 teaspoon salt until well combined. Put the celery root in a small bowl, add 2 tablespoons of the dressing, and toss to coat completely. Add the remaining dressing to the turkey mixture, season with salt and pepper, and toss gently to evenly dress the salad.
  2. To serve, spread the celery root evenly onto a serving platter, top with the dressed salad, garnish with celery leaves and serve immediately.

Note:  If you can’t find celery root, you can use jicama or granny Smith apples for a little tartness.  Dried cranberries also make a great addition to this salad.

Sweet & Spicy Turkey Pitas

Toast 1 1/4 teaspoons curry powder in a skillet 20 seconds; let cool. Mix with 2 tablespoons cranberry sauce and 1/2 cup plain yogurt in a bowl. Add 2 cups chopped leftover turkey and 1/4 cup each chopped scallions and celery. Season with salt and add some toasted walnuts, if desired. Stuff into pitas lined with lettuce or slices cabbage.
