Right now I’m coming at you in the summertime when thanksgiving is likely not on your mind. But hear me out – remember this healthy turkey salad for when you have leftover turkey! It’s the perfect way to use it up.

I often reach for deli turkey for this salad, but you could definitely use your own cooked turkey breast and dice it up.

Turkey is a fantastic lean protein to add to salad. It reminds me of chicken breast, so go ahead and use that as a substitute if you already have that on hand as another option.
