This chipotle turkey salad is one of the most amazing salads I’ve ever made or had. The addition of two simple ingredients, chipotles in adobo and cilantro, to a pretty standard turkey (or chicken) salad recipe really takes it to a new level. This is a fantastic way to use up leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. I wouldn’t just make this salad when I have leftovers around. It’s worth making any time.
I used roasted turkey from my Char-Broil Big Easy. Any cooked turkey (or chicken) will do just fine in. If you’re in a rush just grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and shred the meat for the salad.
