Fruity and festive, this holiday salad is a delicious delight to serve. With all of the naughtier indulgences we will be eating during the holidays, why not include something a little lighter that doesn't skimp on eye appeal or good taste.
I've made this salad before and love the ease of assembling it and the interesting crunchy additions: fresh chopped cranberries, diced organic red apples, and snowy white raw cashews. It's great to be able to take advantage of using the fresh organic cranberries that are available this time of year.
If you struggle to get enough greens, fruits, and vegetables into your meal planning, the variety in this simple salad will provide lots of good tasting immune building nutrients that are crowd pleasers!
Most of all, this salad makes a beautiful presentation that you can be proud to serve at your holiday table.
