My Favorite Salad

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by Melissa and Her Pan

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.

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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup dried cranberries
  • 14 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 ounces crumbled chevre cheese (soft goat cheese)
  • 3 ounces baby greens


  1. Toss the greens with a drizzle of the dressing- just enough to gently coat it, not to wet or overpower the salad.
  2. Sprinkle on the cranberries, almonds, and goat cheese.
