This turkey cobb salad is a great quick lunch to make in the Fall. You can even prep it before hand to take to work. A few more leftover turkey recipes I love to make after Thanksgiving are Leftover Turkey Pot Pie Empanadas, Turkey Santa Fe Lettuce Wraps and Leftover Turkey Pot Pie Soupto name a few!

The dressing is a simple Maple Dijon Vinaigrette which is wonderful with all the Fall flavors in this salad. The portions are very generous, this is a full meal for two, but this can easily be shared between three people.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We always have tons of leftovers which we love because they taste even better and the day is much more laid back, so you really get to enjoy them more.

How many days can you eat cooked turkey leftovers?

If stored in the fridge, make sure to eat turkey within three to four days from the day it was cooked. Once cooked, you will want to wrap up the leftovers within two hours of serving and refrigerate.
