Leftover Turkey Pitas

A week ago I showed the boyfriend Melissa d’Arabian’s Sweet and Spicy Turkey Pitas recipe. His response, “You are crazy. It’s not even Thanksgiving Day yet and you are already researching leftover recipes.” As bad as it is, I get even more excited about leftover recipes than about actual Thanksgiving Day recipes. Gina’s Skinny Recipes had some great ideas with the Turkey Croquettes and Skinny Turkey Rubans. I had some missing ingredients for both of these recipes so I just went with the Turkey Pitas one. I substituted the lettuce with the avocados and the scallions with the cilantro. It turned out great.

Ingredients:1 1/4 teaspoons curry powder, 1 avocado diced, 2 tablespoons cranberry sauce, 1/2 cup plain yogurt, 1/4 celery chopped, 1/4 cup cilantro chopped, 2 cups cold leftover turkey chopped or sliced, toasted pitas, salt and pepper to season.

Begin by toasting the curry powder

In a bowl, combine the yogurt and the cranberry sauce

Mix together and add to the celery, scallions and turkey.

Add the curry powder, salt, pepper and the avocados

Mix together and stuff the warm pitas. Enjoy!
