Chipotle Turkey Salad

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.

Chipotle Turkey Salad

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.
