The countdown is on, and there’s still plenty of time to finalize your Thanksgiving menu. Have you considered salads? They make a perfect Thanksgiving side dish serving as a fresh complement to some of the richer flavors typically on the table. Plan to include several on your menu. If you’re the type of cook who likes to focus all your cooking energy on the main course, stop by our in-store holiday table to find out what salads are available, or ask guests to bring salads. Salads travel well and most don’t require heating, so load your table up with salads and keep precious oven space open for the turkey, stuffing, pies and other goodies. And, if you’re a guest at a holiday table, a salad is a wonderful and convenient dish to bring. Many salads do best when they’re dressed just before serving, especially those featuring salad greens, so check the recipe for assembly info. Happy tossing! Green Salads Consider starting your holiday feast with a first course of green salad. Take your pick from some of our favorites.
