Last week, at some point, I barbecued some small turkey legs and this morning I found a leg and a half in a tupperware container. My first impulse was to grab the half leg and take it upstairs to munch in front of the computer for lunch but it sounded as if Quincy whispered, “turkey salad.”
He only seems to talk when no one else is here, not even in front of the other cat, Bandit. That, or I’m losing my mind It would really be helpful if some of the neighbors spoke either English or French, that is, someone besides the Anglican minister next door.
Anyway. I chopped the leftover turkey, added scallions and chopped German picnic eggs. I really like having these pre-boiled eggs on hand and they look pretty in the refrigerator. I think they must color them because they wouldn’t want anyone to mistake them for fresh eggs. So efficient or anal, however you want to look at it Thank you, whoever’s idea it was! While in Germany, I shall never boil another egg.
Mixed salad greens
1 1/2 – 2 cups cooked turkey, chopped
2 scallions, chopped
2 boiled eggs, chopped
Salt and pepper
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 heaping tsp grainy mustard
Place the salad greens on a plate and set aside. Mix everything else together and mound it on top of the greens.
