Holiday Salad Recipe Using Leftovers


It seems that there’s always a little cranberry sauce left over from holiday dinners. It tastes good on turkey sandwiches, but how many of those can we really eat before we’re over the turkey sandwich thing?
””
Jellied cranberry sauce not only gives this Turkey, Pecan, and Cranberry Salad a great flavor, it also adds color to make it festive enough to serve company. Busy cooks will appreciate the fact that it contains minimal ingredients and can be put together in about 15 minutes; all of the ingredients can be prepared while the pecans are toasting in the oven – they’ll cool in about 5 minutes if they’re put in the freezer after toasting. Turkey, Pecan, and Cranberry Salad can also be made ahead; in fact, it tastes even better if it sits overnight to blend the flavors.

For variety, serve this delicious salad as a filling for croissants and choux (cream puff) shells.
