This is the perfect side to any meal - sweet, tangy, nutty, and totally healthy!

Ingredients

    4 c. mixed greens

    2 med. red apple

    2 oz. walnuts

    1/4 c. celery

    1/2 c. cranberries

    2 tbsp. red onion

    1/4 c. apple cider vinegar

    1 tsp. dijon mustard

    1 dsh. stevia

    1 c. extra virgin olive oil

Directions

Combine mixed greens, apples (sliced into 1-inch pieces), walnut pieces, and chopped celery in a bowl. Toss to mix well.

Prepare the vinaigrette: combine fresh cranberries, finely chopped red onion, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, and stevia in a food processor. Blend until onion is no longer chunky. Slowly add in the olive oil until well combined.

Pour 1/2 cup of the vinaigrette over the salad and toss salad to coat leaves.

Notes: I toasted the walnuts over the skillet on medium heat for a few minutes and it added great flavor (though I like it both ways). The vinaigrette makes more like 1 1/2 cups of dressing... I like leftovers. :) If you don't want leftovers, cut the vinaigrette recipe in half and increase mixed greens to 6 cups and walnuts to 3 ounces.
