I had all my ingredients ready to prep the day before Thanksgiving for my usual Thanksgiving Busy Salad contribution to The Feast. And then I discovered that all the lettuce was involved in the Romaine Recall du jour.
However, I am blessed with good friends, one of whom had sent me a salad recipe link just a day before. I’d admired it, but had thought I was set and therefore able to avoid the pre-Thanksgiving grocery store madness.
I did manage to avoid the insanity, due to shopping at 9:30 PM, and was able to create this concoction:
It was well-received, and even looked good in the serving bowl:
I tell people, “If you have Thanksgiving with us, and go away hungry, it’s your own fault for not trying hard enough.” Also, “Your third plate just means you’re barely getting started.”
If you’d like the salad instructions – it’s more a formula and less a recipe – here’s the link. I highly recommend it!
