Description

This simple fresh cranberry salad is a great way to use up any cranberries you have in the fridge. Or stash a bag in the freezer and surprise everyone this summer.


Ingredients

Units Scale

1 1/2 c coarsely chopped cranberries
3 T sugar
2 T fresh lime juice
2 t Dijon mustard
1/2 c virgin olive oil, walnut oil or hazel nut oil
1 c chopped toasted walnuts or hazelnuts
2 large apples cored and coarsely chopped
1/4 c sliced green onions
1 head romaine or 1 bag baby greens
For garnish: some zested lime


Instructions

In a small bowl, combine cranberries and sugar. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours.

In a medium bowl, mix lime juice and mustard. Add oil in slow stream, whisking to form an emulsion. Marinate nuts, apples and onions in this dressing for 1-4 hours.

To serve: Line a bowl with romaine. Or put your baby greens in the bowl. Make a well in the middle of the greens. Spoon in apple mixture. Make a well in the apples and spoon in cranberries. Or just toss all together. I like this seasoned with a touch of salt. Garnish with grated lime zest.


Notes

Stash a bag in the freezer so you can make this  next summer!
