I just love this. You can alter it to your taste with the choice of nuts, but I think that sliced almonds are perfect. I serve this with dressing Kittencal's Balsamic Vinaigrette, after omitting 3/4 of the oil. All of my amounts are estimates, as I sprinkle the toppings on to my taste. I think this salad works for all seasons but it is especially pretty and festive during the holidays.
- 1⁄3 cup dried cranberries
- 1⁄4 cup sliced almonds
- 2 ounces crumbled chevre cheese (soft goat cheese)
- 3 ounces baby greens
- Toss the greens with a drizzle of the dressing- just enough to gently coat it, not to wet or overpower the salad.
- Sprinkle on the cranberries, almonds, and goat cheese.
We loved the flavor combo of the almonds with the chevre and cranberries. I used a bag of mixed greens and served with my Fresh Lemon Vinaigrette dressing. Delicious! Thanks Melissa, for sharing.
Boy this is a delicious salad! I have a blush wine vinegarette dressing that I love and it is just perfect on this salad. The sweet/nutty/salty flavor of the toppings is a great combination. This salad will be a favorite of mine as well - thanks for sharing!
