CUT: (Feist) Clean – wash hands and surfaces often, Separate – don’t cross contaminate, don’t mix raw foods with other ready to eat foods, Cook – to the proper internal temperature, and Chill – refrigerate food promptly and in a refrigerator that’s at 40 degrees or below. All your fruits and vegetables should be rinsed under running tap water and thick skinned or thick rind fruits and vegetables should be scrubbed with a brush.

SCRIPT: How do you make sure your bird is properly cooked?

Thanksgiving Recipes – Famous Recipes – JERUSALEM ARTICHOKE SALAD WITH GREENS AND HERBS

Thanksgiving Recipes – Famous Recipes –

JERUSALEM ARTICHOKE SALAD WITH GREENS AND HERBS

Makes 8 servings

Jerusalem artichokes are the misnamed underground tubers of a native
American sunflower, they have nothing to do with Jerusalem and are not at
all related to artichokes. In season in the late fall, they are quite
appropriate for a Thanksgiving meal. Those who haven’t had them will find
them surprising and exotic. Though these brown-skinned, knobby roots are not
exactly pretty, their crunchy texture and unusual flavor (a cross between
potato, water chestnut, and turnip) are very pleasant. Do make an effort to
find them — they are becoming more and more easily available and are
sometimes marketed under the name “sunchokes.” But if all else fails,
substitute the crispest t! urnips you can find.
 
1 pound Jerusalem artichokes, scrubbed
1 bunch watercress, most stems removed
2 small red or green bell peppers, stemmed, cored, and cut into rings
2 tablespoons minced fresh dill
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 to 2 scallions, minced

Dressing

juice of 2 limes
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 cup walnut or hazelnut oil

To finish the salad

1 medium head red-leaf lettuce
cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons toasted sunflower seeds
 
Trim the Jemsalem artichokes of any excessively dark or knobby spots and cut
into matchstick-shaped pieces. Combine with the next 5 ingredients in a bowl
 Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and stir.
 
Pour over the salad and toss well. Let the salad marinate, refrigerated, for
about 2 hours.
 
Before serving, tear the red-leaf lettuce and place in a serving bowl. Add
the salad and toss well. Surround the edges of the salad with cheny tomatoes
and sprinkle the sunflower seeds over the top.
