Mixed Green Salad with Dried Cranberries and Pistachios

This festive salad makes a great addition to a fall or winter holiday meal, but is also great year-round.

It's light, yet so satisfying - and delicious!


4 to 6 ounces (4 to 6 cups) mixed salad greens (e.g., spring mix, mesclun, field greens, or your favorite mixture)
4 to 6 tablespoons Honey-Lemon Balsamic Vinaigrette (or your favorite prepared balsamic vinaigrette)
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup roasted, shelled pistachios, coarsely chopped

Place the mixed salad greens in a large bowl. Add the dressing to the salad greens, tossing well. Use only enough dressing to lightly coat all of the greens with the dressing.

Add the cranberries and pistachios to the salad. Toss lightly, and serve.

-- 2-4 servings


  1. Cranberries and pistachios sounds like a really interesting combination. Thanks for sharing this recipe on foodie friday.

  2. I love salads with this combination of ingredients. If only I could keep Hubby out of the pistachios!
