Mango Turkey Salad

Updated: Nov 18, 2020

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 9.5 kg (21 lb) 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 overpowering.

About Culinary Slut

We are not professional chefs; nor are we professional food reviewers or travel writers. We are, however, food and travel obsessed. Food is more than fuel, and we experience it (whether at home or abroad) through a lens polished by our travel experiences. Food 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.

A quick word about reviews: 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 and travel experiences that are a bit "off the wall" (or the beaten path).  That sometimes leads us to experiences that are a bit less-than-perfect (and that's putting it mildly). But, if we don't like something, we just don't post about it. Instead, we’re here to have fun and share our experiences with you in the hopes that you'll find them as fun and wondrous as we do.
