Smoked Turkey Salad with Grapes with leftover turkey for a quick, easy, and nutritious family meal. Turkey is a lean protein that is lower in fat than beef and pork. Turkey is a versatile protein to cook with.
Bake it, poach it, saute it with a variety of spices like cardamom, cumin, paprika, cayenne, or Tuscan seasonings and add citrus flavors such as lemon, lime, and orange. Leftover Thanksgiving turkey has never tasted so yummy. At our house, we smoke the turkey in a large outdoor smoker to get that deep smokey flavor we love. If you don’t have an outdoor smoker, buy the turkey breast and smoke in a stove-top smoker, available for purchase in the Bikini Boutique.
