If you’re anything like we are one of the highlights of the Holiday season (or really anytime of the year) is serving a gorgeous whole roasted turkey. Not only are the “Ooohs” and “Ahhhs” over your succulent roast beast worthy of any family’s love, but the promise of a dinner that’s just a little more wonderful than normal. Add a few over the top side dishes and you’ve got yourself a true feast.
Unfortunately once that meal is all said and done, there’s the question of what to do with the leftover turkey. Most people have a few go-to uses for their leftover fowl, but every now and then a change is nice. Also, really, just how many pilgrim sandwiches can anyone eat?
Using up leftover turkey shouldn’t be a chore, and with this recipe you may find that you actually look forward to the leftovers a much as you did the turkey itself. This dish is simple, fun and packed with flavors that we at the cbsop.com taste kitchens are sure you and your family will enjoy as much as we did.
Please note that this is the perfect recipe for either a little bit of leftover bird or a lot. It’s more about method than amounts and should be played with to fit what your family likes. I personally find that this works best with all the last bits of turkey meat that can be scavenged from the bird, especially dark meat and wing meat, which otherwise might be tough, but pack a ton of flavor. A truly stunning way to use up your Holiday feast is with this beautiful leftover turkey sandwich with rainbow slaw.

What I would have done differently had I thought of it at the time:
Not a single thing. You don’t need cheese, condiments or even toasted bread. It’s amazing all on its own. This dish packed with deep flavor from the turkey and a lightness and crunch from the slaw. It’s wild. You have to try it.
