Make any mixed green salad a little tart and sweet with the bounty of cranberry sauce you’ll have on hand during the holidays. This salad easily transitions into a main dish with its shredded turkey and a generous sprinkle of walnuts. It’s the perfect lighter fare so many of us are looking for after an indulgent holiday meal.

Ingredients

  • DRESSING
  • 2/3 cup (5 fl.-oz. can) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 1/2 cup jellied or whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 cup Italian salad dressing
  • SALAD
  • 1 bag (10 oz.) mixed salad greens of your choice (about 10 cups)
  • 2 cups (about 10 oz.) cooked turkey, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz.) crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/3 cup dried sweetened cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts (optional)

Directions

FOR DRESSING:
PLACE evaporated milk, cranberry sauce and Italian dressing in small jar or container; cover tightly with lid. Shake for 1 to 2 minutes. Makes about 1 1/2 cups. (Dressing can be made in advance and refrigerated for up to 2 days. Shake well before using.)
