Turkey Cranberry Apple Salad

October 18, 2017 in Category: What's New

You’re probably familiar with chicken salad (maybe even our Wine Country Chicken Salad), and you’re probably familiar with tuna salad. But are you familiar with turkey salad? Yes, Trader Joe’s Turkey Cranberry Apple Salad is our seasonal take on this classic dish.

We’ve taken roasted turkey breast meat and turned it into the star of this salad that also contains sweetened dried cranberries, diced green apples, pecans, and red onions. It’s all mixed together with a dressing made from mayonnaise, white mustard, lemon juice, and black pepper.

The secret ingredient, though, that truly showcases this salad’s seasonal inspiration is sage. Sage adds an extra bit of flavor that turns this from a “chicken salad made with turkey” to a “fantastically Thanksgiving-inspired turkey salad.”

So, what does this mean for your around-Thanksgiving-time eating? It means you don’t have to wait for the day after Thanksgiving for a delicious turkey cranberry sandwich. Take two slices of your bread of choice and add lettuce, tomatoes, and a scoop of this Salad for the perfect lunchtime sandwich. Or, take it up an extra notch and use a Pretzel Roll. And, if you’re looking for a lighter version after that huge Turkey Day meal, it’s equally at home on a bed of greens.

We’re selling each 10.25-ounce container of Trader Joe’s Turkey Cranberry Apple Salad for $3.99, through the Thanksgiving season. Want some sage advice? Try this splendid salad before it’s gone.
