Turkey, Cranberry & Apple Salad
When it comes to Thanksgiving, leftover turkey is definitely a blessing! There are so many ways to transform leftover roasted turkey, or roast chicken into easy healthy meals like this simple and scrumptious turkey salad!
I love using homemade Greek yogurt combined with fresh apples, grapes and dried cranberries because it not only gives this turkey salad a creamy tang, but also a healthy dose of probiotics in every delicious bite!
If you're a fan of endive, I have a tasty twist on this turkey salad that's super delicious and fun. Instead of piling it onto a plate, I use crunchy and healthy endive leaves to create the cutest little Tasty Turkey Salad Boats! They're as delicious as they are adorable!
