    I did this with the leftover cranberry sauce that I made using this recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/thanksgiving-cranberry-wine-sauce-71348 and I used green onions instead of normal onions because the regular onions I have on hand are really strong. It was delicious and I'll be using it in future.

    This is a great alternative to the usual turkey salad that everyone serves. I love the sweetness of the cranberries and the crunch from the walnuts! I also used up my leftover deviled eggs, which worked just fine! Thanks for sharing!

    Very tasty! I left out the eggs, only because I didn't have any. I also used leftover whole cranberry sauce rather than reconstituting dried cranberries.

    This is very good. I substituted whole cranberries in jelly sauce. was very good, Also have made it using leftover chicken.

    This made a wonderful cold lunch for my leftover turkey. It's great on a bed of lettuse or bread, pitas, or crackers. I used walnuts and almonds. I know I used a bit extra mayonnaise, too. Thanx for a great leftovers recipe!
