Description

Alea says, "Our Thanksgiving dinner, like most Americans, consists of a buffet that includes too many heavy dishes. And on Thanksgiving Day, I allow myself to indulge... However, I try to make up for that indulgence by using the leftovers to create healthier and lower calorie meals. I will make quite a bit of turkey soup and freeze it to use later on hectic evenings. I also use the leftovers in salad on the weekend following Thanksgiving. This salad uses many traditional Thanksgiving foods, but the curry dressing gives it an exotic twist. This dressing is made using yogurt, which is much lower in fat than mayonnaise based dressings. This mollifies my guilt when I decided to enjoy some leftover pumpkin pie!"
