Simple and delicious! Plus it's good for you too! I toasted my walnuts added some thin sliced red onion and Granny Smith apple slices. I subbed feta for the Romano and used "Easy Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing" from this site. Perfect for a light lunch! Read More

I used almonds and crasins instead of walnuts and cranberries. I really enjoyed it. I did not feel like I was starving myself. Read More

Thanks for a quick & easy winner! I used a 50/50 baby spinach/mixed greens salad blend and Paul Newman's Lite Rasp-Walnut Vinaigrette dressing. The colors were festive & the flavors were great. I always toast my nuts & would suggest doing so for improved flavor. This was big hit at Thanksgiving & a nice change from all the usual heavy hot veggies. I got a lot of compliments on it & will definately be making this again. Thanks for sharing it! Read More

Super awesome salad! My fiance and I were a little skeptical going into it but after the first bite we were hooked and ended up finishing off the whole bowl of salad before starting on the rest of dinner. I was unable to find just dried cranberries so instead used a mix of dried cranberries blueberries and cherries and this just added to the wonderful flavorful taste of the salad. Read More

Easy flavorful and nutritious. What more could you ask for? I love adding nuts and dried fruit to spinach salads it really perks them up. I've also used sunflower seeds instead and it is also delicous. Read More

Great recipe. Simple yet flavorful. I use a similar version where I add dates (pitted) and croutons. It was a hit at Christmas! Read More

What a great simple recipe. I was looking for a spinach recipe to use up the "pillow" of spinach I bought at Costco! I already had the dried cranberries and raspberry walnut dressing on hand. I was hesitant to use the cheese; however itwas very good with it The only change I made was to sprinkle some additional strawberry balsamic vinegar over it. Read More
