Recipe For Holiday Green Salad


I found this salad recipe years ago in a Taste of Home magazine. It was called Merry Berry Salad and is perfectly colored for a Christmas dinner. However, I was thinking that if you threw a bag of fresh cranberries in the freezer right now, this would make a lovely addition to a Valentine’s dinner, too. After all, it is red. And it is kind of fancy…sort of…for a tossed salad. Let me just tell you the dressing is TO DIE FOR. Because the recipe always makes way more dressing than salad, and because I never remember to write that on the recipe, I am thinking of trying it as a marinade for some chicken.
