By no means do leftovers have to be boring and bland; in our eyes, leftovers allow us to get creative with the food we already have. We open up the fridge and see a world of possibilities. Everyone knows that vegetables are an essential side on Thanksgiving. Whether it be roasted brussels sprouts, peppers, or squash, these cooked greens always perfectly complement the main dish. It’s hard to top a classic and easy side, but we took leftover Thanksgiving vegetables and transformed them into an incredibly tasty, Mexican-inspired vegetable slaw. This inventive dish calls for broccoli slaw mix, fresh cilantro, and Dijon mustard along with some herbs and spices. The best part about this side is that it comes together in just 20 short minutes. Pair this tangy slaw with Leftover Turkey Quesadillas and Green Chile Mac-and-Cheese for a delicious Tex-Mex flavored meal. This simple one-dish wonder allows us to get innovative with our holiday leftovers.
