Turkey Waldorf Salad is such an easy meal and full of good-for-you ingredients like apples, grapes and nuts. No wonder it is a long-time classic recipe. Use leftover roasted turkey or cooked chicken and enjoy piled on crescent rolls, croissants, bread or serve on a bed of lettuce greens for lunch or dinner.Continue Reading
- 2 (10 3/4-oz) cans condensed chicken broth OR 6-cups chicken broth/stock and omit water
- 2 cups water (omit if using chicken stock)
- 1/2 cup uncooked wild rice, rinsed
- 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp poultry seasoning
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 2 cups half-and-half (I use fat free half-and-half)
- 1 1/2 cups cubed, cooked, turkey or chicken
- 8 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled
- 1 tbs. chopped pimento
- 2 to 3 Tbs. dry sherry, if desired
In large saucepan, combine chicken broth and water. Add wild rice and green onions; cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover simmer 35-40 minutes or until rice is tender.
Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. In medium saucepan, melt butter: stir in flour, salt, poultry seasoning and pepper. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly; until smooth and bubbly.
Gradually stir in half-and-half; cook until slightly thickened; stirring constantly.
Slowly add half-and-half mixture into rice mixture; stirring constantly.
Add cubed turkey, bacon, pimento and sherry.
Heat gently, stirring frequently; do not boil. Garnish each serving with additional green onion and bacon.
NOTE: You can tell this is an old recipe because I don’t think Campbell’s makes cans of condensed chicken broth any more.
