Turkey and Cranberry Salad


This salad is a refreshing and flavourful way to use up leftover turkey. The mixed greens provide a bed of crisp, leafy vegetables, and the cranberry sauce adds a tangy sweetness. The pecans provide a crunchy texture, and the vinaigrette dressing ties all of the flavours together. You can also add other ingredients to the salad, such as sliced avocado, crumbled feta cheese, chopped apple, or, as pictured, corn.

What are mixed greens?

Mixed greens are a mixture of various types of lettuce and other leafy greens, such as romaine, arugula, spinach, and radicchio. They are often sold pre-packaged in bags or containers in the produce section of the grocery store. Mixed greens can be used in salads, sandwiches, and other dishes, and provide a combination of flavours, textures, and colours. You can also use a single type of lettuce or other leafy green in place of mixed greens, if that is what you have to hand.
