Happy Thanksgiving From EMM

Only 3 more days until the biggest foodie day of the year. I can smell the aromas now, and my keyboard might be a little wet from drool just thinking about all the yummy things that are about to hit tables across the country.

Each year I try to give you a little inspiration for your holiday meal. That last one dish that completes your menu. When I am hosting I fill our table with classics, family favorites, and always one or two new dishes to keep it interesting too.

This simple, delicious fruit salad is begging to be a part of your Turkey Day celebration. Filled with fresh autumn flavors and pretty as can be, your guests will love it.

One of the reasons I chose this to be my 2019 Thanksgiving post is many of the ingredients, you might already be buying for other favorite holiday dishes, so now they can do double duty. Oh, and I think it would taste terrific with some turkey sandwiches too, so even if your big menu is full, whip up a batch for the day and weekend after!

I hope your Thanksgiving is filled with bountiful blessings, amazing food, and most of all the love of all those who matter most to you in this world. From our family to yours,

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Autumn Apple Fruit Salad
4 large gala apples, chopped
2 cups red grapes, halved
3/4 c. chopped pecans
1/2 c.dried cranberries
1 (15 oz.) can mandarin oranges, drained well
1 c. vanilla Greek yogurt
3 TBS mayonnaise
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
1 tsp. cinnamon

In a large bowl combine apple and lemon juice. Toss to coat well. (This will prevent browning.) Add grapes, oranges, pecans and cranberries. Carefully toss to combine. In a medium bowl whisk together yogurt, mayo, brown sugar and cinnamon. Pour over fruit. Gently stir. Chill until serving.
