Day After Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette
Fresh organic greens (baby romaine or mesclun are favorites)
An apple, cut into 1/4 inch thick one-inch slices
Pecans or walnuts
Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
Turkey, cut into bite sized pieces
Feta cheese, crumbled
Rinse and dry the organic greens. Sprinkle with apple pieces, maple glazed nuts, dried cranberries, pepitas, and turkey. Toss with cranberry vinaigrette (recipe below) and top with crumbled feta. Muah!
4 tablespoons cranberry sauce
4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar (white balsamic if you have it)
6 tablespoons grapeseed or canola oil
3 tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
a squeeze or two of lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in a small bowl or 2 cup measuring cup and whisk together until thoroughly combined. Or, if you prefer whip it all up in a blender.
If you’re making this salad for only one or two people you may want to cut the vinaigrette recipe in half.
