Holiday Salad

I am indebted for this recipe to an unknown guest at an unknown party, with an unnamed salad....and yet she definitely knew her flavor and texture combinations! The sweet with the salty, the crisp with the crunchy, the red with the green.... a delightful salad, worthy of it's name! When asked the name of her inspired salad, the creator replied, "I don't know...let's call it Holiday Salad". The original recipe called for golden Sultana raisins...I use dried cranberries in a salute to the season which gives the combo more of a festive twist.

Holiday Salad
  • 3 cups shredded Napa cabbage (or savoy cabbage)
  • 3 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1 large red bell pepper, large dice
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and slivered
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 cups crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 bottle Briana brand poppyseed dressing
  • 1 small can sliced water chestnuts

-Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Chill salad. Before serving, toss with dressing. Serves 8 - 12.
