Total Time: 15 minutes

Yields: 8 servings

YOU WILL NEED:

Salad:

  • 16 oz baby spinach
  • 1 cup almonds , toasted
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

Sesame Seed Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp finely minced shallot
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds , toasted
  • 1 Tbsp poppy seeds (optional)

 

DIRECTIONS:

For Dressing:

For the dressing: In a bowl or jar whisk together white wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar and sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Stir in olive oil, honey, shallot, sesame seeds (your sesame seeds should look more golden than mine – I didn’t toast mine long enough) and optional poppy seeds until mixture is well blended.

For the salad:

Add spinach, almonds and cranberries to a salad bowl. Drizzle dressing over salad and toss. Serve immediately after adding dressing.
