It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving! I can’t believe it snuck up so fast this year. I made my grocery list, went out, and spent a ton of money to prep for our annual feast. Here’s what’s on our menu this year…

-Field Roast Celebration Roast
-Mashed potatoes & gravy
-Stuffing
-Green bean casserole
-Mashed rutabaga
-Pumpkin and sage “sausage” ziti
-Crescent rolls
-Cranberry sauce
-Pumpkin pie
-French silk pie

It’s gonna be a great year! In preparation for the big day, I will say that I’ve been trying to eat more on the healthy side which basically means salad. Salads are such an easy way to fill your body with nutrients and if you’re clever enough, you can make them protein rich and filling too!

My friend Meaghan messaged me recently telling me all about her recent obsession with dill couscous. I am a big dill person and had to give it a go! The result is very subtle, but when paired with my creamy lemon dill dressing, it tastes so delicious!

This salad is bright and colorful and can be meal prepped if you separate the marinated tofu, couscous, and almond parmesan. I recommend making the tofu along with the dressing the day before so the flavors have time to develop.

In addition to the tofu, couscous, and almond parmesan, the Mediterranean Dill Salad is packed with all sorts of delicious veggies including: hearts of palm, snacking tomatoes, kalamata olives, red bell pepper, and scallions.
