About this recipe: Spice up those cold nights with this twist on a traditional Coronation Salad. Round, butterhead lettuce is one of the UK’s oldest varieties and is grown in the UK all year round. This lettuce is known for its sweet, delicate flavour and so makes a great partner for the gently spiced, creamy dressing. Great for using up turkey leftovers!

Serves: 4 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 250g cooked turkey meat, shredded
  • 2 sticks celery, sliced
  • 100g dried apricots, chopped
  • 75g walnut pieces
  • 1 tablespoon tikka paste
  • 3 tablespoons half fat mayonnaise
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 1 round lettuce, shredded

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:4min  ›  Ready in:14min 

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the turkey, celery, apricots, walnuts and tikka paste for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together the mayonnaise, lemon juice and water and stir into the turkey mixture.
  3. Place the lettuce in the base of 4 serving dishes and top with the turkey mixture. Serve.


Use up leftover roast turkey from Christmas or try using cooked chicken instead.
