Kinley and Brooke loved putting these healthy salads together yesterday for dinner. And Great Grandpa and Grandma Moore even knew what we made without giving them any hints.
Gobble Me Up Thanksgiving Salad
From Family FunApple
Orange or clementine
Peanut butter or cream cheese
Mini chocolate chips
Stick pretzels or dried apricot (see directions for explanation)
Cut apples and pears, taking out cores. Dip into a lemon-water mixture to help prevent browning. Separate orange or clementine sections.
Arrange the apple and orange slices to resemble turkey feathers. Lay a cored pear half on top, cut side down.
Use a dab of peanut butter or softened cream cheese to attach mini chocolate chip eyes, a cashew beak and a dried cranberry snood.
For turkey feet: The original directions call for using a dried apricot. Use scissors to halve a dried apricot, then snip small triangles from each half and tuck them under the pear to form the feet.
However, my dried apricots were past their prime. So we broke stick pretzels in half and placed them under the pear.
Happy Thanksgiving from The County Line! I'll be back soon ... after I recover from a week of cattle tasks, followed by a week of Grandma time. It's the perfect definition of highs and lows. I'll bet you can guess which was which!
Blessings to all!
