Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays… mainly because the turkey leftovers give us something to look forward to the next day! As I got older, leftover turkey salad sliders became another one of my family’s holiday traditions! turkey salad recipeOn Thanksgiving day, we gave thanks for many blessings and filled our bellies until they were stuffed.  On Friday, we ate leftovers for lunch, then wondered how to change things up for dinner, since my children nearly cried when I said turkey, again! I went into the kitchen and decided to transform the leftovers with a little help from Hellmann’s.
