I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Jason and I loaded up the car and headed to Los Angeles for a very long 6-hr trek in the middle of the night (after In-N-Out and Krispy Kreme, of course) but we all made it here in one piece.

But before we discuss one of my favorite uses of Thanksgiving leftovers, I wanted to first let you all know how grateful I am to have you as my readers. Without you, this blog would not be possible and I wouldn’t be able to have a job that I truly love and enjoy. You have absolutely no idea how much I appreciate your visits here! So for this Thanksgiving, I am completely and truly grateful for you.

That being said, let’s talk leftovers. I’m sure you have a ton of goodies just waiting to be used and if you’re like me, you probably bought a ham that’s 10 pounds heavier than you actually needed for the big day. I’ve made leftover ham bone soup before but this year, I needed something light and filling, a Thanksgiving detox from all that food coma!

A salad is the perfect way to use up those ham slices, especially in a cobb salad lined up with hard boiled eggs, cherry tomatoes, avocado and creamy goat cheese. And it goes perfectly with guiltless Greek yogurt ranch that’s a bit healthier but tastes just as good as the original!
