“I created this recipe to use leftover holiday turkey. It's a classic bound salad using mayonnaise and celery, but it also includes fresh cranberries, orange juice and cashews. Although new to our menu, it has become a holiday favorite. My family requests I make my own turkey before Thanksgiving so I can serve this salad as an appetizer at our holiday feast. I hope you will find it as enjoyable as we do. Enjoy it on rolls, in wraps, or as a spread with crackers.” - by Jason N - Home Chef
Original recipe yields 12 servings
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking pan with aluminum foil.
- Place the cranberries, orange juice, orange zest, and sugar into a pan. Bring to a boil, and cook, stirring occasionally, until almost all the liquid has cooked away, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, and cool.
- Place cashews on prepared baking pan. Roast in preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove, and cool.
- Mix the turkey together in a large bowl with the celery, mayonnaise, applesauce, salt, sage, thyme, and pepper until evenly blended. Fold in the cranberry mixture. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

"This was just ok for me. I really wanted to like this, but I'm afraid the orange in the cranberry sauce was a bit overpowering. I used mayo, but the sweetness and the orange really stood out making ..." See moreit taste like it was made with miracle whip (which I'm not fond of at all). I will try this again, but will use my own cranberry sauce (Martha Stewart's cranberry grape compote!) and maybe add some chopped onion."

"This stuff is amazing! I didn't have sage and I only had ground Thyme, so those things were different. I also couldn't find whole cranberries in the stores yet, so I used Craisins. I served this on..." See more potato rolls and it makes it even more delightful. My friends enjoyed this as well. I wasn't sure when to add the cashews, so I waited until just before I served it."
"Delicious! Mine version deters as I didn't have exactly the same ingredients however, the salty, sweet flavoring works great with the thyme and sage spice. my substitutes...craisins(cranberries), pi..."
