Wild Rice Salad with Lemon Dressing by @pinchofyum

Start things off with this flavorful salad full of wild rice, juicy mangoes, tart cranberries, peppery arugula and a zesty orange and lemon dressing. If you want to stick to more classic Thanksgiving flavors, replace the mango with green apple. 
 
Garlic and Chive Cauliflower Puree by @primal_gourmet

The secret to a creamy cauliflower puree? Adding a white sweet potato!  It will tighten up the cauliflower and give a texture similar to traditional mashed potatoes.
