After the big meal, we crave ethnic flavors. We’re crazy about this salad based on one by celebrity chef and cookbook author Jamie Oliver. It combines leftover turkey with the big, bold Asian flavors of soy, sesame and five-spice powder.

The recipe—plus a few more of our favorites—will give you a few reasons to be thankful for turkey leftovers long after the big bird day has passed.
