November 26, 2017

This leftover recipe has 3 simple steps: chop the veggies, make the vinaigrette, toss the salad.  That's it! Nothing else! I created the recipe with the leftover dishes I had from Thanksgiving! You can easily make this recipe from scratch if you'd like to give it a shot! Please pay attention to the recipe modifications in order to do just that!!
