A Turkey Chef Salad is such a great way to use up leftover turkey while having a great fresh meal. Add all the veggies and your favorite dressing for a quick healthy dinner!
We are big fans of BIG salads around here! Winter, Spring Summer or Fall. We are so blessed with a great constant supply of fresh fruits and vegetables year round that making a salad is easy.
Now don’t get me wrong a salad in the summer as the tomato and zucchini and cucumbers are garden fresh is ultimately hands down a favorite. But the fact that we can get fresh veggies the entire year would probably throw my great grandparents for a loop.
I think that is one reason that salads make such a great use of holiday leftovers like ham and turkey. A great protein source in salads and while most people only cook turkey at Thanksgiving you still have access to those vegetables that make a salad great!

Of course for me I’m all about the bacon, cheese and hard boiled eggs on a loaded salad! And if you prefer homemade croutons my Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad has a great recipe for those included in the post!
