Prep Time: 10 mins
Assembly Time: 2 mins
Total Time: 12 mins
Servings: 6 servings


  • 4 cups turkey - chopped (leftover Thanksgiving turkey is perfect for this recipe!)
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 3 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup pecans - chopped (toasted is great, but not necessary)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar - or honey
  • 1/3 cup celery - diced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme - chopped
  • 1/2 lemon - juiced (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • salt and pepper - to taste
  • bread or rolls - for serving


  • In a large bowl combine the turkey, Mayo, Greek yogurt, pecans, mustard, sugar, celery, thyme, lemon juice, and dried cranberries. Stir to combine. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  • Portion the mixture onto slices of bread or rolls.
  • Cover and refrigerate any leftovers. 


  1. You can use more mayo or more Greek yogurt if you want your turkey salad very creamy (I usually prefer mine with less mayo/Greek yogurt).
