Ingredients for Thanksgiving Salad:

  • 200g or 7 ounces of kale or collard green
  • 50g or 1/3 cup of pecans
  • 50g or 1/3 cup of pistachios
  • sweet apple, sliced thinly
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 2 tbsp of pomegranate jewels
  • 1 tbsp of dried cranberries

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of pepper
  • 500g or 1 pound of sweet potatoes, peeled, and cut into chunks
  • 70g or 2.5 ounces of vegan bacon bits
  • 1 tbsp of pumpkin seeds

Maple Dressing

  • 1 tbsp of French mustard
  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of maple syrup
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of pepper

How to Make Thanksgiving Salad:

Step 1

In a baking dish, add the olive oil, ground cinnamon, salt, and pepper, then give them a good mix, and spread it evenly at the bottom of the baking dish. Add the sweet potato chunks, then toss them until well coated, and spread them evenly in a single layer. Place it in an oven preheated at 180°C or 356°F, then allow it to roast for about 20 minutes, and then take it out of the oven.


Step 2

Spread the vegan bacon bits and pumpkin seeds over the potatoes, then toss them well to combine, and then put them back in the oven to roast for 5 more minutes. Boil some water in a pot, then put in the greens, and blanch them for a few seconds. Shock the greens in an ice bath, then drain off all the excess water, and prepare the remaining ingredients. In a baking dish, add the pecans and pistachios, then roast them in the oven for about 5 minutes, and set them aside for later.
