We’ve got a pretty quiet Thanksgiving planned this year. But in the past I’ve been so busy planning for a house full of friends and kids that I haven’t even had time to post about Thanksgiving goodies.
The world is a happier place when guests (especially the kids) have little somethings to munch on so they don’t have any problem making it to the main event.
Here are some suggestions for Thanksgiving snacks. All of them can be made a day or two beforehand. And all of them are kid-approved.
I hope you all have a day full of laughter and yumminess.
Honey Salad is my new favorite way to use up Thanksgiving turkey leftovers. My youngest loves it because most of it is her favorite food color, white and beige, and the dressing is sweet.
Honey Salad Recipe
This salad is great sprinkled with chopped honey roasted pecans, if you have any handy. My kids refuse the addition. But, personally, I’m a big fan.
For the dressing:
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons dijon mustard
For the salad:
2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
3/4 cup chopped sharp cheddar cheese
1 heaping cup chopped cooked turkey
1 tablespoon raisins (optional)
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, honey, and mustard until well combined. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, toss together the apple, cheese, turkey, and raisins (if desired). Pour on the dressing and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
Yield: 2 1/2 cups
Prep-time: 15 minutes
