It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost here! Many people are trying to figure out or plan how they will celebrate Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving will not look like what we are use to, but we have to remember this too shall pass and things will get better.

Our family won’t be celebrate with the big traditional Thanksgiving that we use to, but we will still have some really good food.

If you are planning to celebrate on a smaller scale this recipe is for you. Save this one, pin it on pinterest, whatever you have to do save it. This Turkey Salad Croissant.

Use your leftover Turkey or Smoke some Turkey breast to create this simple and easy recipe.

For this recipe I used a brand new product called The White Sauce. The White Sauce is not your normal traditional Alabama White Sauce.

Here is a little more about the company, “The White sauce was created back in 1978 by our mom, Ginny. It was first used on smoked chicken in our family’s barbecue restaurants in North Alabama. After more than 40 years and countless requests, we finally bottled The White Sauce!

The White Sauce is so much more than a white barbecue sauce! It is not like any white sauce you have ever tasted! Unlike traditional Alabama white barbecue sauce, our sauce does not contain horseradish making it the perfect blend of creamy and sweet. It is a great addition to, not only bbq, but also potatoes, salads, stir fry, pizza, fried green tomatoes, and even grilled peaches! That is why we like to say it is, “A Touch of Sweet for Everything!”

This Smoked Turkey Salad will knock your socks off. It’s different with a great flavor profile.

  3. Smoke the Turkey breast for 35 - 40 minutes at 375 degrees.
  4. Halfway through cooking flip to the other side. This will get those grill marks. Optional step. **Be sure the internal temperature is 165 degrees**.
  5. While the Turkey Breast is on the grill, dice the apples and onions.

  7. Once the turkey breast's internal temperature is 165 degrees, remove from the smoker and rest for 5 - 10 minutes.
