Post-Thanksgiving, I’m a little sad because my favorite holiday is done. Somewhere between my 20s and 30s, the favorite switched from Christmas to Thanksgiving. I love what Thanksgiving stands for…..the history and the character that is supposed to embody it (before stores started opening Thanksgiving night). …and I love that it gathers so many important people in my life, and is a day around the table – other influences (like the TV and cell phones:) are NOT invited!!!

Which – Christmas or Thanksgiving – is your favorite and why?

Today I’m making this delicious Slaw. It is so fresh, healthy-tasting, and good!!!!! Some of you may want to back off the red onion (start with just a couple of tablespoons), but the sweet/tart/tangy flavors make this amazing!

If there is an ingredient you don’t have (like fennel), feel free to swap it out for lettuce or kale.

I hope you enjoy this! I created it for @Albertsons @Safeway.


2 medium Gala or Granny Smith apples, cut into match sticks
2 ribs celery, sliced
1/3 cup fennel, sliced thinly
1/3 cup red onion, finely sliced
1 cup diced, tender turkey

toss with:
3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup homemade cranberry sauce
2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons raw & local honey

other toppings: dried cranberries or pumpkin seeds


1. In a small bowl, whisk together greek yogurt, cranberry sauce, vinegar and honey.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine apples, celery, fennel, red onion and turkey. Toss with dressing and serve!
