Kaite Button Simple Salad

Simple Salad with Dried Fruit and Nuts

byKatie Button
Total 10 mins, includes cooling time
Active 10 mins
Makes 4 servings
You can make this with any homemade vinaigrette, but a citrus-herb version is especially good.
  • 2 heads bibb lettuce, washed and leaves separated
  • 1/4 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup vinaigrette
  1. Place the lettuce into a large serving bowl. Add half of the almonds, cranberries, and sliced onion. At this point you can store the salad in the fridge, covered with a damp paper towel for 4 to 6 hours.
  2. When ready to serve, gently toss the salad with the vinaigrette. Sprinkle the remaining almonds, cranberries, and onion over the top to finish.
