I Must Love Me Too

If you have neglected yourself,
make a sincere apology to thee.
Gather the "love-me-not-petals" of your life
and start counting "I-must-love-me-too".
In no time at all you have
a beautiful flower blossom within you. ~ Dodinsky Writings

Day After Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette

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

Dried cranberries

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!

Cranberry Vinaigrette

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.
