My experimental salad was a hit! I had some fresh greens from the farm and decided to get creative on Thanksgiving. I figured the worse thing that could happen was a full of bowl of salad at the end of the meal.
To my surprise there was an almost empty bowl! I just polished off the rest for dinner tonight. There's just something about the combination of sweet craisins, fresh greens, crunchy pecans and smoky gouda. I dressed it all with a bit of store bought sweet maple fig dressing, I didn't measuring anything but I thought I'd still share the idea to hopefully spark some of your own.
Here's my ingredient list...
- Fresh spinach
- Red lettuce
- Handful of pecans (or walnuts)
- Handful of dried cranberries
- Handful of cubed smoked gouda cheese
- A sweet dressing like maple fig or raspberry vinaigrette dressing, just a bit.
Throw everything in a bowl and toss!
Oh! and just a note: The winner of the Tasteful Selections was Barabara (comment 51). 🙂
