With all the "stuffing" we have done in the last week, it is nice to have something light to eat. This simple salad is delicious and very healthy. Here’s what you will need for the salad:
Cranberries, dried and sweetened, I used Craisins
Golden pear-cut in bite size pieces
Toss altogether with S&P if desired
And for the dressing:
Extra virgin olive oil
Red wine vinegar
Mix together more oil than the vinegars because the vinegars are rather strong. A good ratio is 3 parts oil to 1 part each vinegar. Shake well right before pouring onto your salad.
Enjoy this tasty light lunch from now until we “stuff” ourselves again as Christmas draws nearer and all the good food is brought out again.
I’ve combed through my cookbooks and have gathered in a list some of the things I want to prepare for Christmas like…….Crock Pot Candy, Cherry Delight, Date Balls, and homemade Caramel Popcorn….and of course sugar cookies. My Christmas Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks are my favorite….they will put you into a festive mood upon opening the book.
What are you preparing to fix throughout this holiday season?
Please share some recipes with us all.
And don’t forget about my give-away….go here to leave a comment so you will be included in the drawing on the 8th of December.
I look forward to each day with you!
"Happiness is a homespun Christmas!"
