Freezing Turkey Salad

 
 
Reply Sat 17 Mar, 2007 03:13 am
I have a very big turkey breast that I'm going to cook this weekend and would like to make turkey salad from part of it. I'd like to know if I can freeze some since it is made with mayonnaise? I once heard that mayonnaise separates when frozen and thawed out. Thanks for any help!

Mix up all the ingredients EXCEPT for the mayo.

Freeze that mix.

When you want turkey salad all you have to do is defrost and add mayo.

Frozen celery? Frozen onions?

I'd just freeze a chunk of turkey and plan to spend 15 minutes chopping the additions down the road while the turkey thaws.

It works, Noddy. I put all the herbs (thyme, pepper, rosemary) in with the chopped up onions and celery and whatever else (sometimes alfalfa sprouts) in with the turkey and freeze it all in a tupperware container.
On the day of the lunch, I open the container, put a dollop of mayo on top and put the lid back on, put it in my pack and head for the subway. By the time, I've run the park, gone to the gym, gotten to work and (with a side trip to the refrigerator at work) the stuff is about thawed out by noon.

A quick mix with a spoon and sliced bagel from the deli and I am golden.

Joe--

You go to your church and I'll chop my celery and onions later.
