Cranberry Spinach Salad Recipe

This recipe started out as a summer salad with raspberries. I came up with this holiday version when I was putting together the menu for my first Thanksgiving dinner. I sometimes serve it on individual salad plates instead of in a big bowl.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 package (6 ounces) fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, pecans and cranberries. In a bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients. Drizzle over salad and toss to coat. Yield: 6-8 servings.
