'Tis the season! Our Holiday Order Menu has some delicious baked goods, Christmas cookies, sides & fresh baked bread for you to take home to your family & share with friends! One of our most popular seasonal sourdoughs is the Cranberry Walnut Sourdough that we feature in the bakery during this time of year. It is our classic Country Sourdough with the addition of just a little bit of rye for hearty flavor, dried & sweetened cranberries & crunchy walnut pieces.
So what can you make with the Cranberry Walnut Rye? Obviously, toasted with salted sweet cream butter & jam is an obvious & delicious option. But what else? This type of bread makes great sandwiches with holiday leftovers! Leftover turkey or ham layered with cheese, sliced apples, honey mustard & mayo will make a great quick & easy snack!
We decided to mix up a creamy & delicious turkey salad recipe to go with this bread! We then added some homemade cranberry orange jam as a sweet contrast to the savory turkey & wowwweeeee.....this stuff is delicious! You could mix up enough of this Turkey Salad to last you a couple of days. And feel free to sub the Turkey for Chicken - it is just as good!
Turkey Salad Sandwich with Orange Cranberry Sauce on Cranberry Walnut Rye
Turkey Salad Recipe
4 1/2 cups cooked turkey
3/4 cup chopped green apple
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 T dijon style mustard
1/2 t pepper
1 t salt
Cranberry Orange Sauce
4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
2 large Navel oranges squeezed & peeled
3 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups water
For the Turkey Salad: shred the cooked turkey & mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl until thoroughly combined.
For the Cranberry Orange Sauce: Peel the oranges & squeeze the juice into a large saucepan. Add the fresh or frozen cranberries, sugar & water to the pan along with the reserved orange peels & simmer until reduced to a thick sauce. Stir frequently to reduce burning the sauce. The process should take 10-15 minutes. Set aside, cover & refrigerate until cool.
To assemble the sandwich: toast the slices of bread if desired & layer with a leaf of bib lettuce, a generous scoop of Turkey Salad & a schmear of Cranberry Orange Sauce. Then.....enjoy! Easy as that!
This Sandwich is perfect for the holidays because it is so easy to assemble & make & the ingredients are those that you probably already have on hand. Even if you leave out the Cranberry Orange Spread, the Turkey Salad is delicious all on its own!
