Bookmark and Share
Here’s another recipe, courtesy of Almond Accents, that’s sure to make your holiday dinner table look quite festive and inviting. While a green salad isn’t a usual addition to the holiday turkey dinner, it’s a dish that is light and flavorful; it could be a replacement for your usual peas or corn or relish tray. The colors are beautiful and the ingredients are fresh.

Holiday Greens With Almonds and Cranberries Salad

4 cups mixed baby greens
½ cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
1 tart green apple, diced
½ red onion, thinly sliced
½ cucumber, cut into small chunks
½ cup roasted, sliced almonds
Freshly cracked black pepper
White balsamic dressing (see recipe in November 14, 2011 blog post)

Toss together the greens, fruit, cheese and vegetables. Just before serving, top with almonds and pepper. Serve with dressing alongside.

Serves 8 as a side/starter dish
