Curried Turkey Salad in Brioche Recipe


Here is a great way to use up turkey leftovers. Turkey is combined with apple and curry powder into a salad which is served as stuffed brioche sandwiches. If you cannot find brioche, use hard rolls. Feel free to substitute chicken for the turkey.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 2-1/2 cups cubed cooked turkey
  • 3 tablespoons cored, peeled and finely diced apple (optional)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon grated onion
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 4 to 8 brioches (or small hard rolls), hollowed, lids reserved
  • Watercress and cherry tomatoes (garnish)


Combine turkey and apple in medium bowl. Blend together mayonnaise, yogurt, lemon juice, curry powder, onion, salt, and pepper. Add to turkey and toss to blend. Mix in green onion and parsley and toss lightly. Cover bowl and chill until ready to serve.

Place 1 or 2 brioches on each plate, fill with turkey salad and top with "lid." Garnish with watercress sprigs and cherry tomatoes.

Yield: 4 servings
