This Is The Ultimate Thanksgiving Menu — According To Pinterest

Although we obviously use our arsenal of tried-and-true family favorites when it comes to planning our Thanksgiving menus, we also turn to Pinterest to help map out each course. This year, rather than sift through boards upon boards of Thanksgiving ideas, we asked the pros at Pinterest to share their most-pinned recipes plus the food trends they're seeing on the social network in 2015.

While we could have predicted some of the takeaways ourselves (people really love turkey-shaped appetizers!), others were more surprising. In the last two years, for example, there's been a huge surge in people searching for recipes with dietary restrictions, with more than 100 million pins being created for vegan and Paleo recipes.

After going through the data with a fine-toothed comb, we're excited to share the 30 recipes that Pinterest says make the ultimate Thanksgiving feast.

Pinterest says that turkey-shaped trays of fruit and veggies are popular ways to serve healthy appetizers — just make sure to snap a photo of your masterpiece before your guests dig in!
