Day After Thanksgiving Salad

I almost like the leftovers from #Thanksgiving even better than the actual meal. This salad uses up a ton of leftovers plus a creamy spiced orange dressing. Raspberry, spinach, tomatoes, pomegranate seeds, Dubliner cheese, turkey ohsweetbasil.com

I seriously think that I’d rather skip Thanksgiving and just go straight to the leftovers. I love the turkey sandwiches on homemade rolls, leftover pie and this day after Thanksgiving salad. I mean there’s all sorts of deliciousness to be made with all of that good food sitting around. Like these mashed potato cakes with cranberry chutney. Oh my goodness they are like heaven!! Does your family make anything with your leftovers?

I was getting ready for Thanksgiving this year and ended up with a few stragglers, raspberries from the Raspberry Jello Salad, Pomegranate seeds, turkey breast from our herb roasted turkey breast, tomatoes from the easy garden salad with garlic dill dressing, brown sugar almonds from the lemon berry salad and a little Dubliner Cheese from Kerry Gold that we use with snacks before dinner. Plus there was the orange juice from the orange rolls, and all of the seasonings so I decided to throw it all together and see what happens. Oh my goodness. It’s like sweet, salty, crunchy, and spiced creamy goodness. It’s seriously like a second Thanksgiving or even the holidays in one perfect bite. You get a spiced flavor from the creamy orange dressing that seriously tastes like Christmas. It’s wonderful and a great way to use leftovers so I hope you’ll try it.

Are Pomegranates Fruit?

Pomegranates are a fruit that grows on bushes.

The seeds are the edible part of the fruit.

Is Pomegranate Good For You?

Pomegranates are full of antioxidants.

Antioxidants can help remove free radicals, protect cells from damage, and reduce inflammation.

Is Spinach Healthier Than Lettuce?

When it comes to greens, the darker the green, the better.

Spinach is  loaded with essential vitamins, nutrients, protein and fiber!

  • I can’t believe people still use mayo! So gross! Especially when there are so many healthier, tastier substitutions. Throw out the mayo, it’s toxic sludge.

  • I saw “prep time: 2 mins” and nearly fell of my chair in euphoria. After yesterday, the last thing I want to do is slave in the kitchen today. Or, eat carbs. You got me covered girl! Yum!
