My daughter served this salad on Thanksgiving and it was sooooo good. I know the bowl looks really messy and I’ll take the blame for being a messy salad tosser. The recipe called for a raspberry vinaigrette and I couldn’t find just a plain raspberry vinaigrette so I used a raspberry-pomegranate vinaigrette and it was superb as well as being fairly healthy. This salad is chock-full of yummy ingredients and the color just makes it perfect for the holidays. The recipe came from allrecipes originally.
1 (10 ounce) package Italian-blend salad greens
1 (5 ounce) package spring mix salad greens
1 (11 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
1 medium red apple, cored and chopped
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 (8 ounce) bottle raspberry vinaigrette ~ I used about 1/4 to 1/3 of the bottle
In a large salad bowl, toss all of the ingredients except the dressing.
Just before serving, drizzle with vinaigrette and toss.
Makes 10-12 servings.
