Got leftovers? Chef Tina has some great ideas on what to recreate with them!

Leftovers are a conundrum for me. I’m not a fan, but I hate to waste food. If there were ever an opportunity to enjoy leftovers though, Thanksgiving is it. It’s a great opportunity to double-utilize some really beautiful food.

Haricots verts work beautifully with a fresh dose of olive oil and lemon juice to top up a frisee salad.  Take the chill off the beans, re-season them to taste, then dress some frisee with more of that olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
