Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays – who doesn’t love a table of food!

What I love most about the Thanksgiving table is that foods you don’t see year-round get a spotlight. Cranberry sauce (love it!), stuffing (sometimes love it!), and my all-time favorite sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows and flavored with brandy! 

We all know Thanksgiving is a day that revolves around food.

But no matter how many delicious bites you want to take, no one likes to feel sick at the end of the meal. I’ve learned to space my bites mindfully, try not to over-drink wine, and remember that there will always be leftovers for when my stomach is ready for seconds (or thirds). 

Add A Little Green

As much as I love buttery mashed potatoes and savory stuffing, I really do enjoy incorporating as much fall produce into our Thanksgiving dinner as I can (and I’m not just talking about the crimson-colored cranberry sauce!). Serving a fall salad as a light lunch before the big meal or as a side dish on your table is great way to showcase the season’s bounty. A spinach salad with pomegranate seeds, crispy apple slices, and toasted pecans can help balance out the richness of the rest of the meal. 

Autumn Produce Is Delish!

Seasonal autumn produce is some of my favorite! From hearty winter squash to dark leafy greens like kale and arugula, crispy apples, and sweet pears and persimmons – these fall fruits and vegetables are nourishing ingredients to add to your family’s feast. 

I hope this roundup of fall salad recipes that make use of seasonal produce will inspire your Thanksgiving menu!
