Holiday Salad with Cranberry Dressing


Soups and Salads


Cranberries are available year round, fresh and frozen, so use them in novel ways, like for this tart and sweet salad dressing.


Preparation - Directions

1. Place the salad greens in a bowl. Add the pear, apple and almonds, and mix to combine.

2. In a blender, whirl the cranberries, sugar or honey, vinegar and olive oil together until well combined and emulsified. Strain the dressing through a fine sieve into a bowl.

3. Add half the dressing to the greens in the salad bowl and toss to coat the ingredients well. Adjust for salt.

4. If the salad needs more dressing, add it; if not, save the remainder for future use.

5. Sprinkle the cheese shavings over the salad. Serve.
