    From Bon Appetit 1995. My sister discovered this, and our entire family has loved it ever since. Try throwing in some crumbled bleu cheese or gorgonzola - tremendous!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Puree cranberries in processor until smooth. Add vinegar, onion, sugar and mustard and process until well blended.
    2. 2
      With processor running, gradually add oil and process until well blended.
    3. 3
      Transfer to medium bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Dressing can be made one day ahead of time and refrigerated. Bring to room temperature and whisk before using.
    5. 5
      Combine greens and apples in a large bowl. Toss with enough dressing to coat and sprinkle with walnuts.
    6. 6
      Serve, passing remaining dressing separately.
    7. 7
      Note1: I like Granny Smiths or Jonagold apples in this, although the original recipe calls for red delicious. I sometimes dice the apples, rather than slicing.
    8. 8
      Note2: I use about 2/3 grapeseed or other neutral oil and 1/3 olive oil.

      What a nice salad! The dressing was excellent, the balsamic vinegar works really well. I used walnut oil, which paired nicely, and only used 1/4 cup of it, since we like a lower ratio of oil in our dressing. The chopped fresh cranberries are quite mild -- surprisingly, and I only used one teaspoon of sugar (instead of one tablespoon). For us, it would have been too sweet if I had added any more. I used pink lady apples and they gave it a nice balance of tart and sweet as well. Thanks for a great recipe!

      Wow! My husband and I agreed that this salad is awesome! I made it to go with beef stew and they seemed to compliment each other well, although I did think it was a little too elegant for beef stew. :D Very tasty. I only used 1/2 the oil (well, actually I doubled everything else because I cut up too much onion.) and I forgot all about salt & pepper. I used a granny smith apple. It was such a nice combination of flavors. My 3yo son gobbled up his salad, but my 11yo son handed his over to me. Oh well, more for me!

      Love the cranberry balsamic dressing - am going to try making it with more cranberries next time for stronger flavor. Based on the other reviews, I used 1/2 cup walnut oil instead of the full cup of vegetable oil, which worked great. Delicious!
