I usually have leftover turkey after Thanksgiving, and sometimes after Christmas. While I freeze some of it, I keep some in the refrigerator to use over the next few days. I try to make at least one salad during this time.
handful of romaine lettuce or kale
handful of baby spinach
handful of shredded cabbage
1 tomato, chopped or diced
a sprinkling of shredded carrot
1 cup turkey, cut into bite size pieces
leftover peas, cold
- Mix everything up.
- Shred some uncooked sweet potato and turnip or squash over the salad.
- Use a different kind of meat if turkey is not available, and any and vegetables that look appetizing.
- Serve with an autumn soup.
