"We love this salad! The cranberry viniagrette is simple to make and is simply delicious. This salad has become a Christmas dinner tradition for us, but is wonderful anytime, especially the holiday season. This year I was running very late and didn't have time to make the dressing, so I substituted store-bought raspberry viniagrette. It was not quite as tasty as the cranberry dressing, but still very good!"

"This is a great salad! The combination of sweet and tart is just right. I have also made the dressing with thawed raspberries when I couldn't find fresh cranberries in the store. It was delicious that way. I almost prefer the raspberries."

"This is a WONDERFUL salad! I have served it twice now to rave reviews and many requests for the recipe. It is beautiful to look at and tastes fantastic. The cranberry vinaigrette is perfectly delightful. I mixed fresh spinach and Romaine for the greens. Please try it!"

"This recipe has become a Christmas tradition at our house its combination of red and green, tart and sweet with nutty roasted almond crunch is the perfect balance of healthy and festive for the holiday. I make the dressing a few days a ahead and then put the remaining ingredients together in a snap on Christmas Eve!"
