Homemade Elderberry Syrup

1
If you want to know how to make elderberry syrup, the step-by-step process outlined in this recipe is simple. Fresh ginger and manuka honey boost this tonic's potential healing power, and the manuka honey gives it great body (regular honey will also work). With this recipe, you can create a soothing, tea-like sipper by mixing the elderberry syrup with hot water. But if you like something a little cooler, pour the elderberry syrup over ice and top it off with club soda for an invigorating elixir to support your immune system. If you're feeling a little more adventurous, you can use it in a cocktail (see Associated Recipes).

Cranberry Salad

This colorful and healthy cranberry salad will brighten up any Thanksgiving spread. It's sweet but not overly so, with juicy oranges, crunchy walnuts and crisp celery and apples. It's easy to make and can be prepped ahead--plus, you can use fresh or frozen cranberries, which extends the season of this salad. We call for Honeycrisp apples, but Gala or Fuji would also work well. Serve this cranberry salad with your Thanksgiving turkey, of course, or try it with chicken or pork any time of year.

Mojito Blueberry & Watermelon Salad

1
Inspired by the classic mojito cocktail, this festive and healthy fruit salad gets zing from rum, lime and mint. The optional piment d'Espelette--a sweet, spicy ground pepper from the Basque region of France--adds a hint of heat that's a nice contrast to the sweet fruit. Look for this spice at specialty stores, well-stocked markets or online. You could also swap in chile-lime seasoning blend (such as Tajín) for a similar subtle kick or omit the spice altogether. Feel free to skip the rum if you prefer an alcohol-free salad. With or without the rum, this salad has summertime backyard BBQ written all over it.
