Can my favorite Thanksgiving dish be a side? That feels a little wrong… but if so, this salad is definitely in the running. The combination of sweet and savory walnuts, goat cheese, slightly sweet pear, tangy red onion and the soft coat of the maple balsamic vinaigrette is the perfect starter to your Thanksgiving feast this year!
My favorite part of this salad has to be the rosemary walnuts- so please don’t skip that step! They’re well worth the extra 15 minutes, promise!
