Let’s be honest: turkey isn’t the real star of Thanksgiving. Sure, the meat makes a pretty showpiece, but the true gems of the feast are those unexpectedly delightful side dishes. That salad with the uniquely zesty dressing. Those candied veggies that even the pickiest eater devours. The casserole you dream all year about. These are the eats that will have your guests talking long after the wishbone is snapped. Don’t have a knock-their-socks-off recipe? Don’t worry. Libby’s® is here to help.
Say Hello With Salad
“Salad” and “Thanksgiving” are rarely used in the same sentence, and that’s really a shame. Beginning the meal with a fresh concoction of greens–like this Peas, Carrots & Candied Walnut Salad—will thwart off the sluggish, over-stuffed feeling that usually follows the big feast. Do your guests a favor and serve this light and bright recipe featuring Libby’s® Peas & Carrots and a sweet-yet-tangy vinaigrette.
The Cornier, The Better
There’s nothing wrong with being corny. In fact, this Old Fashioned Skillet Cornbread proves that in the culinary world, cornier = better. This classic recipe, featuring both Libby’s® Whole Kernel Sweet Corn and corn meal, cooks in a cast iron skillet, which provides a uniquely crunchy and golden crust. Top it with a dollop of honey butter for pure perfection.
