Baby Greens Salad With Cranberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by BecR2400

This is a lovely salad for a holiday brunch or dinner party! The dressing is so yummy!! I've subbed a mild blue cheese for the goat cheese, and both are equally tasty. From Mary Ann Vitale, owner of La Taverna Restaurant in La Jolla CA.
