Walnut, Cranberry, and Apple Salad with Raspberry Honey Vinaigrette
We’ve had some gorgeous spring weather with pleasant afternoons and cool nights. Perfect weather for after dinner bike rides and early morning jogs. Something about spring kicks my cravings for salads into high gear. I made this salad last week for Ethan’s birthday party and have made it twice since then. It’s a winner salad. And my kiddos love this it too. It’s just the right balance of sweet and tart and the textures are very pleasing. I just love having prepared salad on-hand ready in the fridge, such an easy snack/lunch. If you’re looking to incorporate a salad into your weekly rotation, perhaps you’ll give this one a try.
-1 pound mix of fresh baby spinach and romaine (or your preferred greens)
-1/2 teaspoon garlic granules (or ½ small garlic clove, minced – check for heat)
-1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1. In a large bowl, combine salad fixin’s.
2. In a separate bowl add vinegar, honey, jelly, mustard, salt, garlic, and onion powder – whisk.
3. While briskly whisking, slowly drizzle in oil.
4. Add dressing to entire salad (your desired amount, heavy or light) and about 5 minutes before serving. Or drizzle dressing on individual servings bowls.
5. Store leftover dressing in glass container in the refrigerator Notes: *Serves 6 – 8 adults. *Adjust seasoning, sweetness, and flavors to your preference. I like dressings on the tart side, I don’t care for overly sweet. So, make this your own and to your taste preference.
I like to store my leftover dressing in an old honey jar
I make a big batch of salad and store in a glass container, it keeps all week in the fridge.
