Cliff and Patti's Christmas Spinach Salad

Print Friendly and PDF

Here's a great salad recipe from Patti and Cliff. It's very festive (green, red and white) and perfect for the Christmas holiday. Trader Joe’s spinach works best (buy two, 8 oz. size). If you put the cranberries in the salad dressing, they will be less chewy. You're going to like this salad. It will soon become a regular holiday favorite. Here's a great photo of Cliff and Patti vacationing on Maui.

Ingredients:
1 lb baby spinach, washed
2 Asian pears or regular pears, sliced
8 oz. goat cheese (Chevre or Feta), crumbled
Salt and pepper, to taste

Cranberry Dressing:
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup dried cranberries
¼ tsp salt or to taste
¼ tsp pepper or to taste
1-1/2 cup olive oil
