Make the dressing by blending all the listed ingredients including cranberry sauce, cup orange juice, white wine vinegar, dijon mustard, chopped shallots, mild tasting oil, teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves, and salt and pepper to taste until they are smooth. After you slice your pears and mix them with the NatureSeal Fresh-Cut Produce Extender, you can create your salad with layers of oranges, goat cheese, nuts, and a sprinkle of pomegranate seeds.

A list of fall-themed dishes is just not complete without some apple recipes in the mix. Many thanks to Turnip the Oven for providing a flavorful Indian Apple Salad recipe that can be made in a few minutes so you can prioritize your more intensive holiday dinner recipes.

The versatile avocado can almost fit into your menu at any place, at any time, so why not a thanksgiving dinner table? Martha Stewart published a cranberry avocado salsa that will go great with pita chips before your big dinner!
With sliced avocado and an added long-lasting freshness from the NatureSeal solution, you will whisk together honey and minced jalapeno and chopped red onions. You will then place your avocados, cranberries, and cilantro with the bowl, and adding salt and pepper. With a bit of mixing, you will have yourself a nice dipping option with added pita crisps!
Need a leftover recipe? Here’s another avocado recipe that combines turkey, a staple of every thanksgiving dinner, with a flavorful combo. The Turkey-Taco Stuffed Avocados, provided by Skinny Taste who always publishes daily delicious recipes, can make for a great post-thanksgiving meal.
Halve and pit your avocados with an added NatureSeal to keep the fruit looking deliciously green. Heat a medium skillet over high heat, spray with oil, and add the ground turkey, spices and onion. Spread out the meat with a wooden spoon for about five minutes. You will then add tomato sauce, water and cook, stirring until cooked through for about 6 to 8 minutes. Finally, you will fill each avocado half with turkey, then top with cheese, reserved avocado, and tomato. Get your spoon ready and dig in!
Whichever option you choose this holiday season, you really can’t go wrong! Every new tradition can start with just trying something different, so be sure to take a chance one recipe at a time.
