So, you may be wondering why I have not done a single post about Thanksgiving recipes...I am getting off easy this year with regard to cooking...all my mom asked me to bring was a salad!! Of course I will happily help out with the cooking today, just as mom always helps me when Christmas rolls around and it is my turn to do the cooking.
For the salad I decided to use some nice greens from the Farmer's Market, pretty and delicious Fuyu persimmons, spiced pumpkin seeds (see the recipe for spiced nuts here), and chopped pitted dates. For the dressing combine 1 teaspoon of mustard, 2 teaspoons of honey, 3 tablespoons of sherry vinegar, and salt and pepper in a small bowl and whisk to combine. While still whisking, gradually add 5 tablespoons of olive oil. Taste and add another tablespoon of olive oil if you prefer a less acidic dressing. Add more salt and pepper if desired.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
