3. Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Salad Sandwich

Probably the most common way to gobble up those leftovers is a turkey sandwich, but since we always have to put our own spin on everything, we're giving you a turkey salad sandwich. For an added NatureBox touch, we've lightened it up by using one of our favorites - Greek yogurt. You're welcome. Pro-tip: Not a fan of pine nuts? Try Honeycomb Sunflower Kernels instead.
