Collard Green &  Chopped Turkey Wraps {Leftover Turkey Idea}

OMGEE! It’s the day after Thanksgiving (or the day after the day after Turkey Day), and you still have leftover turkey! This is B-A-D. I think it might be time to give our Collard Green & Chopped Turkey Wraps a try. I mean, what better way to use leftovers than to reinvent them into something genuinely a-mazing. If you’re a turkey eater, then this recipe idea is going to come in mighty handy. Plus, this recipe is pretty darn muy delicious. I mean how could it not be? There’s fresh collard greens, shoestring carrots, roasted yellow and red bell peppers, green onion, red quinoa, and chopped turkey. And the whole thing is drizzled with Habanero Mayo. Not too shabby if you ask me. 

Beet from Garden

And yes, this beet came from my garden. The last beet was used for this jam-packed delicious leftover turkey recipe idea.

But wait a minute, you’re probably wondering how we got here. Where did I get the turkey you ask? Okay, you twisted my arm hard enough, so I’ll tell you. I picked up this beautiful bird at our local Krogers. I grabbed the Fresh Honeysuckle Turkey Breast for a few reasons, and here they are. The Honeysuckle brand uses no growth hormones, no added hormones or steroids, and the turkeys are raised by independent family farmers who take pride in offering a great product and wait for it, they’re USDA process certified.
