This Mediterranean Turkey Salad recipe is fantastic for using up leftover turkey or chicken and this sandwich is flavorful and filling! Full of plenty of delicious vegetables and turkey, this savory salad can be used in many ways.
It’s holiday time and no matter how hard we try to pretend it’s not happening… it totally is. With the holidays comes parties, gatherings and other events and maybe you’re even the hostess.
One of the main components of any good party is FOOD.
For me, as a food blogger, it’s usually the primary focus.
This is one of my favorite go-to recipes for any holiday party or event.Often we top crackers with it, or even crostini and serve as an appetizer. It’s got a wonderful Mediterranean flavor make up and can be made with Turkey (as we did), Chicken, Tuna or Salmon. All taste amazing.
If you want to serve several varieties to your guests, you have a whole bunch to choose from while still only buying a few ingredients. It is a fantastic holiday recipe since Turkey is in abundance at this time of year, and it works GREAT with leftover turkey.
I used Mezzetta products to take this to the next level, but you can use whatever you have on hand.
The best part of this Mediterranean Turkey Salad is using up leftover Turkey while creating a unique and mouth watering flavor that is over the top delicious.
The wonderful Mediterranean flavors for this recipe comes from the delicious Kalamata Olives, Spanish Queen Olives, Roasted Bell Peppers and Mild Pepper Rings (because we like to add a little spice and it’s the perfect amount).
We love garlic so we used a garlic mayonnaise we found and tossed in a smidge more garlic. But that’s the beauty of a recipe like this, because if you love something, add more of it. If you don’t love something, use less.
Whatever you decide to do it’s amazing!
We made a huge batch for a party we had two weekends ago. We were lucky enough to wind up with just enough extra for sandwiches the next day.
We chose a Garlic and Herb Ciabatta roll to serve on, and omg! Just incredible.
I am so glad we had the small amount of leftovers because it added to this wonderful recipe. This past weekend, we enjoyed holiday time with family and we each had to bring a dish.
I layered this wonderful Mediterranean Turkey Salad on sliced pieces of the Ciabatta buns like you would with Crostini. It was a fabulous appetizer and they were gobbled up SO fast with several requests for me to bring it again at Christmas.
Are you ready to whip up a batch of this super easy, flavorful Mediterranean Turkey Salad?
This is such an easy recipe, make up some and enjoy on crostini, crackers, sandwiches, in wraps and more! Or just eat it alone. You’ll thank me later.
