Mango Turkey Salad

Updated: Nov 20, 2019

We love turkey salad sandwiches. This is an easy and tasty one we make every year, using the leftovers from our roasted turkey. It's also featured in our One Turkey, Two People blog, where we roasted a 20lbs turkey to see how many meals we could make out of it for the two of us. This is also good use of leftover roasted chicken!


Makes Two Sandwiches.

4 slices of white bread

185 g of shredded leftover turkey meat 2 green onions, chopped 1 small celery stick, finely sliced 2 - 3 tbsp fresh basil thinly sliced

*3 - 4 tbsp Mango Ginger Aioli (we buy ours at the Co-Op grocery store) Butter lettuce


Mix turkey, green onions celery, and basil. Once well combined, stir in mango. Toast and butter bread. Place on bread with lettuce leaves, and enjoy!


* Don't have mango ginger aioli in your store? Try this recipe:

2 cups mango diced mango

1 cup mayonnaise

1-2 tablespoons grated ginger

Kosher salt to taste Blend mango into a puree. Gradually stir into mayonnaise until you achieved a desired consistency (don't let it get too "watered down"). Taste as you go, and stop just when the mango flavour starts to come through. Add one tablespoon of ginger, give it a taste to see if you want more. The ginger should be a delicate flavour, not over powering.

About Culinary Slut

We are not professional chefs, nor are we professional food reviewers. We are, however, food obsessed. Food is more than fuel; it is tradition, history, family, celebration. It brings us together, it reflects the world we live in and where we came from. In many ways, food defines communities and our cultures. It can be creative, joyful and comforting. Food is life.   

We come from humble backgrounds and that allows us to appreciate humble noshing; at the same time
, we have achieved some small measure of success that allows us to travel and gives us access to culinary artistry. We both come from cultures where food is central to community and family and is symbolic of friendship.

You will not find negative reviews on Culinary Slut. While we may poke fun at times, it is as much at ourselves for risking food that we know is not haute cuisine as it is at the food itself.  If we don't like something, we just don't post about it. Instead, we’re here to have fun and share our wonderful experiences with you.
