Needless to say, there is always a ton of leftovers. Now, I’m fine with leftovers. Leftovers are great. I LOOOOOOVE me some leftovers… but after a day or two, it can get boring… amirite?
So, I try to mix it up and make totally different dishes out of what I have on hand to mix with my Thanksgiving leftovers. I really, really, love this turkey salad with cranberries, it still has yummy fall flavors but I could eat it every day!

I like to serve the turkey salad in mini croissants. But, feel free to use any kind of bread or roll you wish.
I’ve also mixed it with a regular salad and had it like that, plus no need to add additional salad dressing!

Turkey salad with cranberries directions:

  • Dice turkey and place in a medium-sized bowl.
