Salad Challenge Day 5: Spinach Salad with Dried Cranberries

Sorry…the long weekend got a hold of me! I’ll be posting 2 salad options today.

The first: Spinach Salad with Dried Cranberries (A Martha Stewart ‘Every Day Food’ recipe)

1/4 cup of raw green pumpkin seeds

4 tbsp red wine vinegar

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp of olive oil

sea salt and fresh ground pepper (to taste)

8 oz baby spinach

1/2 cup of thinly sliced red onion

1/2 cup dried cranberries

-First, bake pumpkin seeds in a pie plate approx 10 min at 350 until brown

-Dressing: mix vinegar, mustard, oil and season with salt and pepper to taste

-Add spinach, onion, and cranberries, cover with dressing and toss to combine

-Top with pumpkin seeds and serve.

(This salad is meant to be a side dish. In her recipe Martha uses dried cherries but I prefer cranberries. The choice is yours!)
