Christmas Salad

I am starting to get really excited about Christmas…It’s only a month away!!  Therefore, I am going to start posting festive recipes.  Such as this one…a favorite of mine!  I’m hoping to share a variety of recipes that you will enjoy for the Christmas season….stay tuned!

I was first introduced to this salad last year by a family member.  I loved it!  So easy and appealing.  I love the festive appearance…and it tastes so good!  It is a light salad that I feel goes best with poultry, but I imagine it would go well with beef or pork.  I generally dislike dressings on my salad, but definitely enjoyed this one.  It is a salad that certainly won’t last long on the table!

Christmas Salad
Serves 6

For the dressing:
1/4C cranberry concentrate
1/4C white wine vinegar                                                                                                  

1/2C olive oil
1/4tsp fresh ground pepper

8 cups baby spinach
1/2C thinly sliced red onion
1/2C dried cranberries
2 avocados (sliced and added at the last minute)

Prepare the dressing by combing all the first 4 ingredients together, shake until well blended.

Drizzle over the spinach and onions until well combined. Sprinkle with cranberries and avocado. Serve immediately.
