TGIF! On this Friday before Thanksgiving, I have a quick post for you. If you are lucky to have leftover turkey after the big meal, I suggest you throw together this quick salad. This salad is bright, crunchy and fresh. Perfect for the day after that heavy meal that puts us all into a tryptophan coma. Best of all, it only takes a few minutes to throw together!
