Ok, I know what you're thinking. Kale? On Thanksgiving? Normally I would agree, but the older I get the more I really like something crisp and light to balance out all the richness. In fact, whenever we go over to my brother and sister-in-law's for Thanksgiving (and they host a HUGE group!), my sister-in-law always makes sure there's a salad, or two. And it's nice to have a break from the richness. So, yes, kale salad for Thanksgiving. But, to appease those who would shake their hands (and I know who you are!), there's also pancetta.....and candied pecans. You're welcome.
