Turkey or Chicken Salad Sandwich Filling on Rye Bread, Carrot Sticks

Turkey Or Chicken Salad Sandwich Filling

Turkey and chicken salad sandwiches are so good! I have made hundreds of chicken and turkey salad sandwich fillings using various ingredients. This one is a favourite of ours especially when using new crop apples. Add some lettuce, arugula or mizuna and you’ll have yourself a great sandwich!

Makes 4 or 5 Sandwiches

2 cups diced cooked turkey or chicken
½ cup, combined, finely diced celery & unpeeled apple
¼ cup snipped chives (or to taste), or 2 Tbsp. finely chopped green onion
1 Tbsp. each chopped fresh dill & parsley
1 tsp. or more to taste, finely chopped fresh sage
1/3 cup toasted chopped pecans or walnuts
¼ cup chopped dried cranberries
½ cup mayonnaise (light is fine, you could substitute a bit of sour cream for some of the mayo)
1 ½ tsp. fresh lemon juice
Salt & pepper to taste

Place all ingredients except mayo and lemon juice in a bowl. Combine the mayonnaise and lemon juice, add to the turkey or chicken stirring well.  Spread your bread of choice with some butter, pile on the filling, top with greens of your choice and enjoy!
