"A lot of Thanksgiving days have been ruined by not carving the turkey in the kitchen." -Kin Hubbaard, Writer

The refrigerator light goes on...

Waldorf Salad is one of the ultimate comfort foods for me. The combination of sweet apples and raisins, creamy dressing, savory turkey and crunchy walnuts and apples is perfect. I like the tartness that Granny Smith apples brings to Waldorf Salad. This combination with turkey is really wonderful.

This is a great way to use leftover turkey after a holiday like Thanksgiving or Christmas and the perfect way to add points to your Med Diet Score with fruits, nuts, and veggies.
