Thanksgiving Green Bean Salad is loaded with flavor from blue cheese, cranberries, and pecans, and can be made ahead for the holiday table! And if you skip the dried cranberries, this salad can work for a low-carb or Keto diet, or see more tips below for reducing carbs.
There’s a lot to love about this Thanksgiving Green Bean Salad that has blue cheese, cranberries, and pecans. Not only is it holiday-worthy in the flavor department, but you can cook the beans and marinate them in the dressing, and toast the pecans, crumble the blue cheese and measure the cranberries all in advance, so when it’s time for Thanksgiving dinner all you need to do is toss the salad together.
This salad is great at room temperature too, so you don’t even need to use much fridge space. I’m recommending this for a Thanksgiving salad partly because the dried cranberries are so traditional for that day, even though they’re a bit of a splurge if you’re watching your carbs. But this tasty salad would be great without cranberries, and it would be a treat all through the holidays.
