Winter Salad with Cranberry Dressing

This is another one of my sister-in-law Caroline’s salad recipes. It is absolutely delicious and perfect for the festive holiday season. The genius of this salad lies with the dressing; you can improvise on the salad ingredients with whatever you like, such as pears, dried cranberries etc.

For the dressing:
1/4 cup fresh cranberries
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 T red onion, chopped
1 T sugar
1 t Dijon mustard
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 t salt

For the salad:
mixed greens
diced apples
walnuts (I used candied)
gorgonzola cheese crumbles
dried cherries or cranberries

Puree the cranberries in the food processor until finely chopped. Add all the ingredients except the oil; gradually add the oil with the processor running. Toss salad ingredients with dressing to taste.
