MY FAVORITE SALAD WITH CRANBERRY ORANGE VINAIGRETTE
This salad is not only simple to put together but tasty too! With fresh ingredients like sliced pears, an assortment of lettuce and crunchy walnuts. My PEAR WALNUT SALAD is a winner! There’s no recipe, just add your favorite greens (lettuce), sliced pears and either toasted or plain walnuts (toasted is best). When ready to serve drizzle vinaigrette and toss or serve on the side. Sophisticated and simple!

For a creamier vinaigrette add all the ingredients to a blender or use an immersion blender. I used my immersion blender it really emulsified the dressing. The oil and vinegar never separated.
- ½ cup canned whole berry cranberry sauce
- ¼ cup fresh orange juice (about 1 orange)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons good balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
To a blender or deep container for an immersion blender add the cranberry sauce, orange juice, oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Blend until completely combined. Serve at room temperature.
If you would like a chunky dressing simply add all the ingredients EXCEPT the oil to a bowl. Slowly add the oil while whisking.
