• Cranberry Spinach Salad

    This savory salad combines fresh spinach leaves with sweet-tart dried cranberries with a light slightly tangy poppyseed dressing that really brings out the flavors of both.
    It's a wonderful side dish or light lunch. For a slightly heartier main dish, add sliced grilled chicken and a sprinkle of shredded cheddar cheese.
