Are you wondering what to do with all that turkey leftover from Thanksgiving? Gluten-free and altogether nommy, this is one of our go-to meals when the holidays are over, the leftovers are piling up, and no one has any desire to cook.

Full of delicious textures, every bite will play a bit different on your tastebuds. The chives in Emerald City Seasoning brighten up the entire dish while the mix of peppercorns give the dressing a surprising kick. You'll get that light feel of a salad even without any lettuce present, and it's easy to substitute raisins or fresh grapes for the dried cranberries to customize the dish as you please. 

This dish is simple, elegant, and makes the perfect post holiday snack.
