Arthur, Ill. (WCIA)

It’s that time of the year when we’re excited about preparing and eating our favorite holiday dishes. Today guest chef, Anita Dukeman, prepares a Thanksgiving Salad with Sage and Rosemary Dressing and discusses the health benefits of the fresh herbs, healthy greens and root vegetables in the recipe.

This recipe for Thanksgiving Salad with Sage and Rosemary Dressing is from the newly released More Mandy’s cookbook. It would be a healthy addition to your holiday table. (The dressing alone is worth the price of the book.)
