Cranberry, Feta and Roasted Walnut Salad

I first had this salad at a restaurant in Salt Lake. My husband liked it so much that we looked up the recipe and made it at home. It's really good. I'm not a salad person but this is very yummy and easy to make. It's a little expensive with the walnuts and cheese so I won't make it daily but I would serve it for a nice dinner with friends. 

  • 1 pkg. (10 oz.) spinach salad leaves
  • 1 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1 pkg. (4 oz.) crumbled Feta Cheese
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped toasted walnuts
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar (I used Balsamic Vinegarette from Newman's Own)
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  1. Layer spinach greens, cranberries, cheese and walnuts in shallow salad bowl or on large serving platter.
  2. Whisk vinegar, honey, mustard and pepper in small bowl. Slowly add oil in a thin stream, whisking constantly until well blended. 
  3. Pour over salad. Toss gently to coat. Serve immediately.
