Thanksgiving is, as it should be, a holiday of excess. What better way to give thanks than to celebrate with a feast? As much as we love turkey, though, we sometimes need a little relief. Here are 7 Thanksgiving salads we’re counting on this season to cut the holiday’s heavy-hitters.

Actually, in our house we consider bacon a vegetable, but my husband's relatives not so much.

you left out my favorite! The m.wells brussells sprouts salad. which is what i'm making for thanksgiving (minus the ham and cheese for those in our family who pretend to keep kosher).

That is my favorite as well and it will also be gracing our Thanksgiving table this year. I, however, will not be holding on the ham and cheese, as in our household. proscuitto (along with bacon) is somehow overlooked as a non-kosher pork product. ;-)
