The day after Thanksgiving most of us have leftovers of some sort.

After we’ve eaten and enjoyed that wonderful meal, a beautiful salad topped with some of that leftover turkey sounds really good!

I have been making this delicious field green salad with cut up Turkey for lunch and sometimes dinner the next day. With out of town guest and many shopping that day, this is a for sure easy to put together for everyone.

Turkey sandwiches are easy and delicious also.

Pile them high with Turkey, cranberry sauce, even a little stuffing on some really good bread. Yum! Turkey Pot Pie can be on the menu a few days later.

You can assemble it anytime and have it ready to pour into your crust and bake a few days later.
