Thanksgiving is fast approaching and for me, the highlight of the day is making a big, delicious meal for my family. I tend to go a little bit overboard during the holidays and this year will be no exception! From tried and true favourites to new tasty fall dishes, there’s just nothing better than Thanksgiving dinner.
One of our family’s standby Thanksgiving recipes is Japanese Coleslaw and with its tangy dressing and great crunch, it’s no wonder it’s so popular. I especially love seeing how the boys gobble it up, since the cabbage in the coleslaw has plenty of fibre and nutrients!
- 1 bag shredded coleslaw mix
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds
- 1 pkg. Oriental flavour Ramen noodles
- 1/2 cup oil
- 3 tbsp. vinegar
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
Combine coleslaw mix, sunflower seeds, almonds and crushed Ramen noodles in bowl.
Meanwhile, mix oil, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper and seasoning packet from Ramen noodles until combined.
Pour mixture over coleslaw mix and toss until coated.
The crunch from the nuts, seeds and Ramen noodles is what makes this salad so popular with my boys, and I love how easy it is too! For a fun twist, replace the homemade salad dressing with ½ cup of your favourite Kraft salad dressing! I especially like Kraft Toasted Sesame dressing with this recipe.
Of course, there will be many more dishes on our Thanksgiving table, from succulent turkey to fluffy mashed potatoes to decadent desserts. If you’re searching for the perfect dessert for your table, any of the pumpkin recipes on the Kraft What’s Cooking website will be sure to please. Personally, I’m forgoing traditional pumpkin pie this year and making the Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe instead!
Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday and it’s made even better with good food prepared with love. Try a few new easy recipes yourself this year and add some extra flair to your celebration. Delicious food is always something to be thankful for!
