This is a healthy and delicious salad. It has easy to find ingredients, it is easy to make, and it tastes like gourmet. Try to use a romaine/red leaf mixture; it's particularly good in this salad! You can add grilled chicken strips to this salad to create a filling main dish.

I really like this recipe. It is very easy and looks lovely. I would recommend using a 6 oz package of the cranberries....and toss with only 1/2 bottle of the wonderful Raspberry Walnut dressing. I highly recommend. Read More

This was a good base recipe to help me create a yummy salad I LOVED. The changes I made: I added red onion and feta cheese and did not use any avocado. For people looking for the raspberry walnut salad dressing look for the "Ken's" brand. Read More

I served this at Easter and it was a hit. I only used 4-6 oz of cranberries and 1/2 of the bottle of dressing. I couldn't find the exact dressing so I used Raspberry vinaigrette and chopped my own walnuts. My family and friends loved it Read More

This salad is great! While I was preparing it my husband teased me about what a "girl " salad I was making (we're newly married). But he LOVED it. The only thing I will change for the future is a little less cranberries & vinaigrette (just personal taste). Read More
