Cranberry Spinach Salad

2

Ok, so can I just say that I've been making this salad for almost four years now and it's ridiculous how much I eat it. It is almost like an addiction. The dressing is sweet and tangy which is offset by the bitterness of the spinach and the sharpness of the feta, it is just happy in a bowl! The other great thing about this salad is how versatile it is. If you have fresh fruit, use it. You have romaine lettuce and not spinach, that works too. The dressing works on so many different combinat

-Baby spinach leaves (Romaine, or Mixed Greens work well too)
-1/2 cup Craisins (dried cherries, dried pomegranates, fresh strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries... whatever you have that sounds good!)
-1/2 cup candied pecans/almonds
-1/2-1 cup feta cheese (Colby, Monterrey Jack, sliced mozzarella cheese sticks)
(cucumbers sliced and quartered taste great with this salad also)

Best Salad Dressing Ever
1 cup light colored vegetable oil (sunflower oil works great, use your favorite)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
In a salad dressing shaker or mason jar combine oil, sugar, vinegar, garlic, salt and paprika. Shake well until thick and well combined. This keeps well in the refrigerator. It will separate, shake well...
