THE ULTIMATE HOLIDAY SALAD

THE ULTIMATE HOLIDAY SALAD

I don’t know about you, but at my house for Thanksgiving, everything has to be traditional, and everything has to be the same, except for the salad.  I have a bit of leeway there, and today I’m sharing a wonderful salad for your feast – I t’s different, but doable and really delicious.  I know Rob and Sheila join me in wishing you a happy holiday, filled with family, friends and food!

 

DOUBLE BERRY HOLIDAY VINAIGRETTE WITH SAGE

 

1/2 cup cranberry juice – I’m using Kroger’s frozen, reconstituted

1/2 cup raspberry jam, sieved to remove seeds

1/3 champagne or white wine vinegar

1-2 teaspoons minced Cippolini onion or shallot, or more to taste

1 tablespoon minced parsley

1 generous teaspoon minced fresh sage  or 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon dry

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard – I’m using Kroger’s private selection

1/2 cup grape seed oil or Canola

Salt and freshly ground white pepper to taste

 

Whisk juice, jam, vinegar, onion, parsley, sage/tarragon and mustard together.  together.  Slowly whisk in oil.  Season to taste. 

 

SALAD

On a pretty platter, make layers of the following and drizzle dressing over, or let guests help themselves to dressing,  or toss the greens with the dressing and then put them on the platter first, layering the topping after you dress:

 

Autumn Greens

Toasted nuts ** - place on cookie sheet in single layer & toast until fragrant at 350, about 8-10 minutes. 

Dried cranberries

Feta or your choice of strong flavored cheese

Sliced pears, apples or pomagranate seeds

 

Tips from Rita’s Lazarus-Macy’s Kitchen:  Seeding pomegranates:

To remove pomegranate seeds easily, cut the fruit into halves for several sections.  Place in a big bowl of water and remove seeds into the water.  Strain and enjoy – and this is a lot less messy than doing it on the counter!
