My favorite feature about this book is that every single recipe has a gorgeous picture – I love seeing what the recipe is going to look like (because let’s be honest- you want your holiday meals to be gorgeous!).

This Cherry Whip Salad is the perfect side dish or even dessert! Jeni talks about how her mom made this salad every year and it was one of her favorite food memories. You can easily prep this the day before your feast and have one less thing to worry about.
