“Turkey, baked mac-and-cheese, and stuffing are all Thanksgiving dinner showstoppers. But real talk: unless you add some fiber to your plate, you’re not going to be feeling all that festive later. Thanksgiving salad doesn’t get the same level of accolades as other starring dishes, but it should. After all, a diet high in fiber is linked to a cornucopia of health benefits, including reduced inflammation, boosted metabolism, and a happy gut.
All the Thanksgiving salad recipes rounded up here are not only full of the nutrient, they’re also quite delicious, thank you very much. From traditional salads loaded with greens to ones made with other veggies such as sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts, to even ones served warm, here are 20 Thanksgiving salad recipes to choose from.”
From Sarah : Check these wonderful salads out. Don’t wait !
“We’re all guilty of staying in our comfort zones when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner. I get it – no one wants to mess up the most important meal of the year! But if you’d like to try something different this year, Asian-inspired sides might be a good starting point if you’re not ready to make the centerpiece Asian-style turkey yet!
Today I want to introduce you to the Chinese-inspired sticky rice stuffing.
This recipe uses sticky rice, crunchy water chestnuts, tender Chinese sausage, umami shiitake mushrooms, and soy sauce. The end product has a great texture and a comforting and rich taste. The recipe does require you to soak the rice in advance. But once that’s done, I guarantee you’ll be surprised how easy this recipe for sticky rice stuffing is. “
From Sarah : I am still trying to figure out how to write a post with the NEW-To ME Block System. I don’t like it. Not one bit. This is a NEW -TO ME Blog. Omnivore Cookbook was one of the Saveur Award Winners For Food Blogs. This recipe is a little different from the stuffing/dressing recipes we usually see this time of year. Definitely, a Chinese inspired recipe. I look forward to reading more from this blog. Love And Hugs, Sarah
As we get ready for the holiday season, it’s time to start thinking about our holiday dinner menu. Will you serve a ham, wild turkey or a juicy game hen? Regardless of the meat, a good stuffing recipe is needed to accompany this feast. In Laura Ingalls Wilder’s These Happy Golden Years, (and mentioned in other books), cornbread stuffing plays a big role at dinner, especially since it’s topped with bacon…….
This recipe is part of Barbara Walker’s cookbook, The Little House Cookbook: Frontier Foods from Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Classic Stories. We adapted the original recipe by adding a few more ingredients to it for color and flavor, such as red and green peppers and onion. The recipe also calls for adding seasoning and sage to the cornbread mixture after it’s baked. We decided to sprinkle the sage on top of the cornbread mixture before baking it.
From Sarah : I have this wonderful cookbook. I also have Melissa’s Gilbert’s “My Prairie Cookbook”. Little House On The Prairie was a favorite TV show. We watched it as a family. I had all of the book when I was a child. When my niece started reading , she got her own set.
From Sarah: I was going to add some more photos but was having trouble uploading them. Love And Hugs, Sarah
