Apple Walnut Cranberry Salad

The cranberries in this salad are very different than my other Cranberry Salad, called Cranberry Fluff.  That Cranberry Salad is sweet, almost like a dessert.

However, this Apple, Walnut Cranberry Salad is savory with a slightly sweet and tart combination, combined with nutty and salty flavors.

Suffice it to say, your salad bowl will be filled with flavor when you make this salad.  It combines the sweetness of the green apples and cranberries with the saltiness of the gorgonzola while the walnuts add a bit of crunch.  Yum!

To dress this salad, I made my Apple Cider Vinaigrette.  I rarely buy bottles of salad dressing any more because it is so easy to make my own, especially vinaigrette.  This one starts with olive oil and adds apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, garlic powder, dried oregano, black pepper, and basil.  Easy!

This salad is easy yet impressive…my favorite combination.  Go ahead and make this salad.  Impress your friends.  Just don’t tell them how easy it is to make. Don’t worry. I won’t tell!
