Stunning 'Thanksgiving Salad' Is a Must-Have for Turkey Day

If you’re preparing your Thanksgiving day meal on the lighter side, and are looking for recipe ideas, look no further. TikTok content creator @herwholesomekitchen shows us how to make a sensational Thanksgiving side salad. And it’s a perfect compliment to any meal.

This salad will have everyone asking for seconds! 

We love apples in our salad! This crunchy bowl of healthiness has us salivating. This spectacular salad is made with 6 cups of shredded lettuce, 1 sliced apple, 1 sliced pear, 1/2 cup pecans, 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds, 1/2 cup crumbled feta, and 1/2 cup dried cranberries. That sounds so darn yummy! Forget waiting until Thanksgiving; we want to eat and enjoy this today! 

The sensational dressing is made by combining 1/3 cup olive oil, 2 tablespoons honey, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 2 tsp dijon mustard, and salt and pepper to taste. That sounds just as amazing as the salad! Not that you’d want to, but you can customize this according to your tastes. Walnuts can easily replace pecans if you’d prefer, or maybe a little diced mozzarella instead of feta could also work here too. Diced cheddar cheese might also be lovely with those apples. 

The audience loved this salad idea. Viewer @AnaliciaPowell commented, “Looks delicious.” Viewer @user5684095499275 asked, “What other cheese do you suggest? I don’t like feta.” And @ replied, “You could do parmesan! Or goat cheese, blue cheese.” That sounds fabulous, too! 

We think this beautiful bowl of fresh fruit and veggies is just what we needed for our table. We're excited to give this salad a try!
