Thanksgiving Salad Ideas

The Crunchy Veggies

We wouldn’t be us if we didn’t include a colorful veggie or two on our menu. Each of these salads and slaws features seasonal fruits and veggies (apples, carrots, Brussels, radicchio) and is sure to brighten up the table.

Simple Salads

Think: 5-10 ingredients (or less!) to add color, crunch and vibrancy to your table. The perfect first course before heavy side dishes and filling poultry are passed.

Hearty Salads

Or, if you’re interested in more robust salads that double as side dishes, try one of these filling salads. For even more protein, consider adding white beans or bacon.

Crunchy Slaws

Like the simple salads, these slaws call for few ingredients but lots of taste. Plus, the cutting method (thinly sliced and diced) calls for a crunchy bite with lots of taste and texture.
