Side number 3 for your Thanksgiving menu is here and it’s got the prettiest name. I introduce to you, the Harvest Panzanella Salad. This one is just as pleasant as it sounds combining all kinds of veggies and fruits to make for a colorful and tasty addition to the menu. And the dressing…flavor overload. It calls for maple syrup and if you guys remember me telling you, my sister has her own Maple Syrup Farm in upstate New York. It’s called Whitney’s Maple Spring Farm and it’s the only syrup I use. Order away, it would mean so much and you will love! Enjoy, Xx.
