One of my goals for 2016 is to have more meatless meals. JC and I are both on the same meatless kick so I have been coming up with unique twists to our favorite meals. We both love spinach salads so on Sunday, I decided to try a new version of the classic spinach salad. I love oranges and cranberries together so I decided to make Orange Cranberry Spinach Salad for dinner!
Tell me that doesn't look awesome and oh man, it tasted better than I could have ever imagined. It also made for a super quick meatless dinner.
Orange Cranberry Spinach Salad
Time: 10 minutes
2 cups spinach leaves
1 cup baby kale
8 grape tomatoes, sliced
1/4 red onion, sliced
1/2 cup mandarin oranges
olive oil for drizzling
Wash and dry your greens and place in a large salad bowl.
Add red onions and sliced tomatoes and toss.
Add mandarin oranges. If you use canned mandarin oranges like I did, make sure to drain them well first.
Add 1/2 cup of Craisins® Fruit Clusters and sprinkle with cheese. Drizzle with olive oil. Serve.
Let's get a close up look at all this goodness. So many pretty colors.
This salad was bursting with flavor. It was sweet with a kick, in part to the red onion and kale. It was also very filling.
Craisins® Fruit Clusters are the newest variety of dried cranberries available from Ocean spray. I am a huge fan of the original Craisins® Dried Cranberries. I add them to sandwiches, salads or even buy the multipacks to carry in my purse as a snack.
Craisins® products are avaialble in the dried fruit section at your local Walmart.
Tell me: Do you like dried cranberries? What's your favorite food to pair them with?
