>Turkey Leftovers: Day One


**Update: You can find an easy-to-print version of this recipe here! **

Feeling a little more stuffed than your Thanksgiving turkey?

If you’re anything like me, you manage to consume so much on Thanksgiving that you don’t really feel like eating much of anything for the next 4 days after. But what on earth to do with the leftover turkey?!

Move over Panera Bread Company, because I’ve put together a recipe that will knock the socks off anything on your menu!

I’m a huge fan of any sort of “salad” – egg, tuna, chicken, especially Waldorf salads. So I decided to combine a few recipes and make up my own version of a Turkey Waldorf salad, light enough that your taste buds and stomach will thank you after 24 hours of major eating, and super simple.

Turkey Waldorf

2 cups chopped turkey
1/2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp dijon mustard
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup Miracle Whip
1/2 cup Craisins or dried cranberries
3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chopped Granny Smith apple

Mix up all those wonderful ingredients.

A nut-grinding mill. Awesome, wonderful contraption.

Serve on a bed of baby spinach, with crumbled feta or mozzarella cheese sprinkled on top. Whew, wasn’t that difficult??

Yum. Delicious, light, and portable. Pack this and that spinach and some crusty bread rolls in a cooler and have a little picnic break in your car while you’re out fighting for Black Friday bargains.
