¾ cup mayonnaise, or to taste

The oven should be preheated to 325 F (165 C). Use aluminum foil to line a baking pan.

On the prepared baking sheet, spread the cashews—roast for 10 to 12 minutes in a preheated oven or until golden brown. Cool after removing.

Mix the turkey, celery, mayonnaise, applesauce, salt, sage, thyme, and pepper; stir to mix well. Add the cranberry mixture by blending. At least two hours before serving, refrigerate.
