Cranberry Chicken {or Turkey} Salad- HEB Copycat Recipe…

Cranberry Chicken (or Turkey) Salad {HEB Copycat Recipe}- The Creativity Exchange

 

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!! We have had such a fantastic last few days with friends and family and we are so looking forward to relaxing the rest of the week.

I thought that I would share one of my favorite recipes today that is perfect to make with leftover turkey. This recipe is a copycat recipe that I knocked off from the HEB cranberry turkey salad that they sell pre-made in the stores. If you have ever had the HEB cranberry turkey salad, you know how amazing it is. If you have never tasted it before, let me tell you, it is seriously out of this world!! You can make this recipe with either turkey or chicken and either way, it’s really delicious.

By the way, I like to serve the salad on large croissants and I have also found that Craisin’s really give the best cranberry flavor.

Here’s the recipe below:

Cranberry Chicken/ Turkey Salad {HEB Copycat Recipe}

Serves Four

Ingredients:

3 Cups of Shredded/Diced Chicken or Turkey Meat
1/2 Cup of Mayonnaise
1/2 Cup of Sour Cream
1/4 Cup finely chopped white onions (optional)
3/4 Cup of Craisin’s (or dried cranberries) softened and diced.
1 teaspoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Dried Parsley
1 teaspoon Dried Dill
1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt

Boil 2 Cups of water in microwave. Remove water from microwave and add the Craisin’s or dried cranberries to sit in water for 10 minutes to soften. After 10 minutes, drain water and dice the cranberries (cut in half is ideal).

In a large boil, mix the chicken/turkey with the mayonnaise, sour cream and onions. Add the softened and diced cranberries, sugar and seasonings. Mix with the backside of a fork to mash the cranberries into the mix. The more you mash the cranberries, the more cranberry flavoring is infused into the mix.

Cover and chill for at least two hours before serving. Mix again right before serving.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week and I’ll be back on Friday with Friday Favorites.

Cheers!

    Do you think you could use Greek yogurt instead of mayo?

    How come you used sour cream? It isn’t anywhere in what’s on the box. You also didn’t include the celery. Any reason?

    Oh my goodness! I finally got around to trying this recipe last night, and it’s so delicious! It really does taste like the HEB one! Bonus – this is so much cheaper. The recipe made way more than what you can buy in HEB’s container, which costs about $7.00. Thank you so much for this recipe. I never would’ve figured it out on my own, and now I can save a lot of money. My daughter really eats this stuff up (she likes it with water crackers). Also, HEB is a bit of a drive, so this is really convenient. Thanks again!
