Turkey Salad (From Leftovers)

Photograph by Shannon L. Buck copyright 2015. https://www.lulu.com/

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.


(Serves 4+)

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

  1. Mix everything up.
  2. Enjoy!



  • 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.


Serving Suggestions:

Happy Eating!
