– Thanksgiving Salad
This recipe is a wonderful idea to accompany the delicious Thanksgiving turkey and thus provide a healthy and delicious salad to the dinner with your loved ones.
To prepare it we will need: 1 lettuce, arugula, 7 ounces fresh cheese without salt, ½ cup almonds, ½ cup raisins, ½ cup walnuts, ½ cup dehydrated apple, ½ cup apricot, 2 lemons, 3.5 ounces of mayonnaise, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Place in a glass bowl (the one you will use to serve) the lettuce and arugula already cleaned.
Add raisins, dehydrated apple, apricot cut into squares, almonds and walnuts.
Cut the cheese into small squares and add to the mixture. With this, our salad will be ready; and it is time to prepare the dressing.
In a separate bowl place the mayonnaise, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. We have to mix until it is a homogeneous mixture and we place the dressing aside of the salad. Remember that the dressing should be served right at the time the salad will be eaten to prevent lettuce and ingredients taste bad.
Dried fruits are also an excellent choice for making drinks. In this time of Thanksgiving and Christmas an ideal drink is the fruit punch. This drink is able to provide warmth with an excellent taste in the comfort of our home.
To prepare it we will need: 6 cups of water, 1 cinnamon stick, 2 cups dehydrated apricots, 2 cups dehydrated apples, ¼ cup dried cranberries, ¼ cup dried plum, 1 cup of guava juice and sugar.
Its preparation is very simple and fast. To start place in a cooking pot 2 cups of water together with the dehydrated fruit, when it starts to boil add the cup of guava juice; leave in low temperature for 10 minutes. Then, add the remaining 4 cups of water and add sugar to taste. Warm up for 10 more minutes and you’re ready.
This drink can serve hot or cold. It is a great choice to take to school or work; or even for a very cold night to be warm with a nice movie, serve yourself a cup of fruit punch.

Place butter and flour in the mold you will use. Bake for 25 minutes, every 5 minutes check with a knife if it is ready. (You’ll know it’s ready when the knife comes out clean).

While we beat, we place the flour slowly. When the mixture is ready, add the butter. We continue beating, when the mixture is already placed in the mold.
Bake 50 minutes, until color changes. When we see that by changing color, we prick with a toothpick if it comes out clean, it means that our pancake is ready.
When we take it out of the oven, let it cool a bit and remove it from the mold.
Mix the ½ cup of water with the ½ of sugar. We spread it all over the cake and later placed the grated coconut as decoration. Let cool and have a great delicious dessert to enjoy.
