Hey there, gang. I have a couple of new recipes for you this week, both of which use Thanksgiving leftovers. It is the week of the turkey, you know. And a person needs to arm him or herself with a few tasty ways to use the tasty bird up, am I right?

Today’s recipe is my copy cat version of a wonderful main course salad served at a local bakery (Kneaders). I made the Turkey Breast of Wonder in my crock pot and then built this fabulous salad complete with moist turkey, red onions, craisins, feta cheese, sunflower seeds and my homemade Raspberry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette. And then, dear reader, I kicked my feet up and basked myself in its deliciousness. My family loved it, too and I have to admit to making it for dinner three times in the past month or so. I just set all of the ingredients out and let everyone build their own individual salad as they enjoy it most. (Some of my kids think their tongues will light on fire and fall out of their faces if they eat red onions. Truly. It’s a very serious concern. Please proceed with caution.)

Hope you enjoy this salad, guys! And good luck with all of your Thanksgiving Day preparations. You can find 20 of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes here, and a list of all Thanksgiving Recipes on the site here.

Now, let’s make some salad baby. You, me and your tasty bird of wonder.

1. Lay out some beautiful spring mix lettuce onto a plate.

Add a few sliced red onions,

some chewy craisins,

a heap of feta cheese,

a bit of shredded turkey

and a spoonful or two of roasted and salted sunflower seeds.

2. Make yourself some Raspberry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette (recipe and tutorial found here). Drizzle it all over the salad.

Kick back and enjoy!
