Mixed Green Salad with Dried Cranberries

Mixed Green Salad with Dried Cranberries & Cabbage

I love cranberries - fresh, frozen or dried. There are many different ways to cook and eat them, but in a salad, dried is the best. This recipe has a nice mixture of taste and crunch with cabbage and dried cranberries. It's a great salad to serve any time of the year even at a summer barbecue!

Mixed Green Salad with Dried Cranberries

Serves 4 to 6


1 teaspoon dried basil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
6 tablespoons olive oil
Whisk all dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.

1 small head green or red leaf lettuce, washed and torn into bite-sized pieces
2 carrots, grated
1 cup red cabbage, shredded
3 tablespoons sunflower seeds, toasted
2 medium tomatoes, cut into large chunks
3 green onions, sliced thin
2 tablespoons dried cranberries
Salt and pepper, to taste


Combine all salad dressing ingredients in a small container with a lid. Combine all salad ingredients together in a large salad bowl. When it’s time to eat, toss together, using enough dressing to coat. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
