Recipe by Bev I Am

This is a very colorful, simple yet tasty salad which would be perfect served with a holiday meal or anytime you have a craving for cranberries! I discovered this recipe in Bon Appetit, 1999.

I saw this recipe while I was making dinner, and decided to improvise with what I had in the house in order to make it. I used walnut oil, liquid cranberry juice, sherry vinegar, spinach, Pink Lady apples (a little more tart and crisp than a Fuji), dried cranberries (half the amount), walnut halves (double the amount), and no green onions (since I didn't have any). The dressing was yummy, we liked the amount of sweetness, and it was the right quantity for us, but a lot of people do like more dressing than we do. Update: Made this a second time with fresh cranberries (full amount), and also really liked it. I expected it to be a little on the tart side, but it really wasn't (in my opinion)!
