Top salads with leftover turkey and add your favorite seasonal ingredients, such as diced pear or apple, dried cranberries and toasted pecans. Bonus: Use up leftover cranberry sauce by making it into a quick vinaigrette: add 1 tablespoon red wine vein gear to 1/4 cup cranberry sauce, whisk in 1/4 cup olive oil, then add salt and black pepper to taste.

Turkey Avocado Wrap

On a sprouted-grain wrap, spread cranberry mustard spread (equal parts of Dijon mustard and cranberry sauces) or cranberry Thai chili spread (one part Thai chili sauce to three parts cranberry sauce). Add shredded Napa cabbage, sliced avocado (or try thin slices of cucumber with the thai chili sauce), shredded turkey meat, and thinly sliced strips of red bell pepper. Roll up the wrap, and cut it in half diagonally. This recipe originally appeared in our November 2011 issue.
