Eddie Salter’s Wild Turkey Salad

Eddie Salter is known as “Turkey Man,” and he’s no stranger to eating wild turkey. Here’s his favorite way of taking advantage of the often-overlooked legs and thighs:

Dark meat pieces of turkey
1 medium jar of pimentos
1 tablespoon sugar
5 eggs, boiled, chopped
1 bell pepper, diced
1 stalk of celery, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 cup of mayonnaise
2 salad pickles, diced
Salt and pepper, to taste

Boil turkey pieces until done. Scoop off the top layer of broth and save. Allow turkey pieces to cool, then debone. Chop the meat into fine pieces and add all ingredients except mayonnaise and broth. Add 1/2 cup broth and stir in desired amount of mayonnaise.
