This year I am trying a new side dish for Thanksgiving.  For the last 20 years, I have enjoyed mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and sweet potatoes.  While I love the classic side dishes, I decided to add a new side dish to my family’s Thanksgiving.

This year I partnered with The Fresh Market to find a new impressive recipe for Thanksgiving.  I was able to purchase all of my ingredients from The Fresh Market as well.

I am obsessed with this lemon shrimp with white beans recipe.  It’s so simple to create and has lots of flavor.  You’ll be happy to know that it’s also very light so you won’t feel uncomfortably stuffed.  It can also be served as an appetizer.  This recipe is sure to be a hit with your family this holiday season! When you create your dish, take a picture, tag me and  The Fresh Market!
