Winter is a terrible time for salads with tomatoes, cucumbers and other summer toppings. My winter mixed green salad uses toppings that are more seasonal.
Mixed Green Salad
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup walnuts
4 oz goat cheese – bake the goat cheese in oven for 5 minutes at 350 degrees and crumble
1/4 cup olive oil (i use a citrus infused)
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar (mine was cranberry pear)
1 tsp Italian seasoning
salt and pepper
Assemble salad, mix dressing and toss.
