Turkey Salad with Peanut Dressing

TGIF! On this Friday before Thanksgiving, I have a quick post for you. If you are lucky to have leftover turkey after the big meal, I suggest you throw together this quick salad. This salad is bright, crunchy and fresh. Perfect for the day after that heavy meal that puts us all into a tryptophan coma. Best of all, it only takes a few minutes to throw together!

Turkey Salad with Peanut Dressing adapted from Bon Appetit November 2014. Serves 4.


You’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp. unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. Sriracha
  • 2 cups shredded cooked turkey meat
  • 1 cup shredded green or Napa cabbage
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves with tender stems
  • 1 cup mint leaves
  • 1 large carrot

Whisk peanut butter, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and Sriracha in a small bowl.


Mix turkey, cabbage, cilantro, and mint in a large bowl. Shave carrot lengthwise with a vegetable peeler and toss into the salad.


Spoon some of the peanut dressing onto serving plates.


Mound salad on top, drizzle with more dressing and serve. A refreshing salad for the day after Thanksgiving!


Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving! Cheers!
