This Monday's project was to use up all that leftover turkey from Thanksgiving by choosing one of these Recipes from Martha Stewart's Whole Living series. Just so you know, I have lots of turkey left over. I roasted a TWENTY POUND bird!!! And served it to a measly 5 people, two of which were children under the age of 7. Ha! I have lots of turkey left over. We are turkey-d out! We've eaten it plain, in sandwiches, in soup, and tonight in a tetrazzini. But back to the issue at hand.
I chose to make the turkey salad wrap since it uses one of my favorites - honey mustard - plus I happened to have all the ingredients on hand and didn't have to make a special trip to the grocery. I made two of these last night, wrapped them in wax paper. They were really easy. Just fill a 12-inch tortilla with some greens (spinach, watercress, whatever), half a shredded carrot, two ounces of turkey meat chopped, and a mixture of honey-mustard, mayo, and vinegar. One was sent to work with my husband who has yet to comment on it. I ate mine at lunchtime and really liked it. While not exotic, it was a departure from the usual turkey sandwich.
So . . . give it a go if you still have some turkey to swallow down. Or try one of the other recipes and let me know what you think.
