Michael Symon begins Thanksgiving with this tangle of multicolored vegetables—radishes, golden beet and carrots—tossed with a lemon-dill dressing. Because they're served raw, the vegetables should be sliced very thin, in a food processor or preferably on a mandoline. Symon recommends using a Greek feta for the salad's cheese garnish, because he likes that Greek feta is saltier than some others. More Thanksgiving Vegetable Side Dishes

  • In a large bowl, combine the celery root, beet, onion, carrots and radishes. In a small bowl, whisk the garlic with the lemon juice, oil and dill and season with salt and pepper. Add the dressing and feta to the sliced vegetables and toss well. Transfer to a platter, garnish with the almonds and serve.

Make Ahead

The toasted almonds, vegetables and dressing can be refrigerated separately overnight.

Suggested Pairing

Substantial Rhône-style whites from California tend to have rich, ripe fruit that's excellent with earthy root vegetables.
