Thanksgiving Recipe:

Island Pacific House Salad with Honey-Mustard Dressing

For the month of November, Isla Kulinarya will be featuring special recipes for Thanksgiving, which is a very special holiday celebrated in America every last Thursday of November. Traditionally, it has been a time to give thanks for a bountiful harvest, but has since evolved as a holiday to express thankfulness, gratitude, and appreciation to God, family and friends. Since it is celebrated with a four-day weekend, families have time to visit and gather together for loving reunions and lots of feasting.

Now , we bring you Chef Ryan's creations starting off with appetizer and salad, that will surely be a hit on your Thanksgiving dinner.
