Leftover Cranberry Salad Dressing


I love finding new ways to dress up my leftovers.

Take this salad dressing, for example. It’s made with a simple mix of leftover cranberry sauce, vinegar and olive oil, and it transforms an ordinary salad into a delicious treat.

Use this dressing over a bed of mixed greens, topped with your favorite leftover veggies and sliced turkey for an easy post-Thanksgiving meal. No need to turn on the oven! It will feature all of the holiday flavors you love, with a healthy dose of nutrients, to boot!

My problem is, we’ve already eaten our cranberry sauce. I guess we’ll just have to make another batch. Simply so we can have some leftovers to make this beautiful dressing.
