Planning your Thanksgiving salads

Salads. The word evokes fresh greens, vegetables, perhaps fruit: light and refreshing. What. Not this?
My pamphlet on salads suggests in full black and white glory that  your guests can select their own salads from a salad bar. Hopefully your salad bar has more color than this.
And of course when you think of salads you think of aspic, right? Chicken, ham, chicken and olive, we have you covered.

Oh it's so depressing. Let's live a little and have some color. Here you go....

Everything is better with Jell-O.

Do you need more inspiration? There's always the famous Holiday Cheese Salad.

I used to spend hours going over these very pages in my mom's recipe books. I wonder if she still has them?

I have so missed your blogging and am in heaven now that you are back!! I know I sound like a stalker but I really enjoy your preceptions on life, how you find humor in everyday things and your Joie de vivre.

I have some of these pamphlets too and there are some real doozies!

"Aspic." Just the word gives me the heebie-jeebies. We have an 80-something-year-old friend who cannot celebrate any event without bringing or requesting aspic. I see Cleopatra and the asp every time someone says the word. Ick.
