I stock up on cranberries each fall when I visit a cranberry festival. I always have plenty on hand at Christmastime for making special holiday dishes, including this tangy salad. —Patricia Slater, Pefferlaw, Ontario

"This is delicious!!!!! It has a nice tart/sweet combination with the oranges and cranberries. The feta cheese gives it a bit of saltiness. The second time I made it I used more spinach and less mixed greens because that's what I had on hand. It was just as good as the first time. My husband and I loved it."
