Thanksgiving Leftover Statement Salad

Thanksgiving Leftover Statement Salad

  Serves 6

“Rach has been making ‘statement salads’ the past few weeks, and they’re as beautiful as they are delicious! Basically it’s a large salad served on a big cutting board, with the ingredients arranged really pretty on top. What do you need the most the day after thanksgiving?! A giant salad! So here is my go at a Thanksgiving Statement Salad.”


  • 2 cups stuffing
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 cups salad greens (whatever you’ve got on hand if this is a leftover scenario, I enjoy
  • pring mix or baby kale)
  • 2 cups leftover turkey or 1 rotisserie chicken, skin removed and shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups gravy
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups roasted butternut squash
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups baby carrots, chopped
  • 1 cup blue cheese or goat cheese (or whatever else will crumble from your leftover cheese plate!)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups roasted Brussels sprouts
  • 1 cup pecans, roasted and chopped


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Place stuffing on a sheet tray and break it up to make large crumbles of stuffing (think: croutons!). Bake for 8-10 minutes or until crispy.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cranberry sauce, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, honey, salt and pepper. Continue whisking and stream in the olive oil.

Add turkey and gravy to a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook until it is heated through.

Toss salad greens in the dressing. On a large cutting board or flat platter, arrange dressed salad greens to make a base. Arrange in rows across the greens – crispy stuffing croutons, turkey in gravy, butternut squash, avocado, carrots, cheese, Brussels sprouts and pecans.
