Fall Turkey Salad with Cranberries, Apple, Kale and WalnutsI love leftover Thanksgiving turkey.

In fact, I always buy a bigger turkey than we need so that we have plenty of leftovers.

I love thick slices of turkey breast on white store-bought sliced bread with mayo.

I know it’s horrible. But it’s comfort food from growing up that I just haven’t lost the taste for.

I make most of my sandwiches on good healthy bread but I still desire that simple one which reminds me of growing up.

Fall Turkey Salad with Cranberries, Apple, Kale and WalnutsThis year, we’re trying to eat more grown up. Instead of eating all the white meat on sandwiches I made Fall Turkey Salad with Cranberries, Apples, Kale and Walnuts. And served it up on a bed of fresh arugula.

I still ate a couple of those horrible sandwiches on white bread with mayo first! But I have to admit the Fall Turkey Salad on arugula is tasty.

And while I still love my sliced turkey sandwich, this Fall Turkey Salad is a new favorite. Plus, I can eat it on bread as well.

Oops, my bread weakness is showing again.

Regardless of how you like your leftover turkey, I think you’ll love this Fall Turkey Salad.
