A fresh salad with lots of good toppings on it, all of my favorites. Nice enough to serve to guests, and simple enough to serve every day.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together vinegar and oil and add salt, pepper and mustard until it is well blended.
  2. Toss with the baby greens or mesclun until the leaves are nicely coated.
  3. Toss again with the tomatoes.
  4. Place salad portions in bowls, garnish with a small amount of red onion, sprinkle with crumbled bacon, toasted pine nuts, and dried cranberries; serve.

This salad is amazing! I wouldn't change a thing. The dressing is superb and the ingredients all go together perfectly. A great recipe to bring to a barbeque or pot luck dinner.
