Thanksgiving Chef Recipe: Shaved Cauliflower Salad

Posted on Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2021

“I love a dish like this for Thanksgiving because it requires very little oven or stove top space (only the bacon needs to be cooked) but its still full of great fall flavor and ingredients. This side pairs perfectly with a nice rich slice of turkey, and is refreshing and bright – which is a great counterpart to a lot of the heavier things we eat at Thanksgiving.” – Executive Chef Vanessa Miller
