For most people, the day after a big holiday gathering means two things: a refrigerator filled with opportunity and a marked lack of energy. Fortunately, there are easy ways to make the most of the remnants of your holiday meal so you can take it easy and enjoy a day filled with good food and good rest.

Sandwiches are a natural solution for post-holiday noshing, but all those exceptional entrees practically beg for one last chance to shine. Put a fresh, wholesome twist on this year’s sandwiches by ditching the traditional condiments and dressing up your bread with a new kind of spread. New hummus-based Sabra Spreads – available in Garlic Herb, Honey Mustard and Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper – have 75 percent less fat than the leading spread, mayonnaise, and pair perfectly with sandwiches and wraps of all kinds.

Make an upgrade with these stepped-up takes on the traditional turkey sandwich and more, and find additional mouthwatering inspiration at Sabra.com.
