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

  • 4 c. greens, mixed, fresh, organic
  • 2 med. apple, red, fresh, organic
  • 2 oz. walnuts, raw, organic
  • 1/4 c. celery, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 c. cranberries, fresh, organic
  • 2 tbs. onion, red, organic
  • 1/4 c. vinegar, apple cider, organic, unfiltered, raw
  • 1 tsp. dijon mustard, organic
  • 1 dsh. stevia, loose
  • 1 c. olive oil, extra virgin, unrefined and unfiltered, organic

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.
