Thanksgiving Salad

Are we all enjoying our spandex waistbands, friends? Did we all indulge in perhaps 15 pieces of pie? Only me? ;) No matter how many times you went back for “seconds”, we all end up with a few containers of Thanksgiving leftovers. It’s inevitable. If you’re like me, you’re looking to lighten it up post-turkey day in order to get ready for all those holiday parties! So behold the delicious Leftover Thanksgiving Salad Recipe!

This salad even has a use for leftover Thanksgiving cornbread (or stuffing) – making homemade croutons! You’ll find that recipe tucked away here on Homes.com as well.
