Cranberry Avocado Salad with Sweet Balsamic Vinaigrette

Today’s recipe is a salad that can only be described as very versatile indeed. Enjoy this salad as a mid morning snack , as an accompaniment to your dinner or even as a main meal in itself.

Although it has already has plenty of wonderful tastes and textures here are some suggestions for substitutions. If you do not have any baby spinach just use arugula or regular field greens. You can safely swap almonds for pecans or walnuts. If you do not have the recipe for candied nuts here it is.

Fruit additions work well too. Try some finely sliced mangos, blood orange or crisp apple or pear. No salad is complete without a nice dressing and this vinaigrette is something you should make plenty of so you always have some handy.

I hope you see why I describe this healthy cranberry avocado salad as versatile because it really cannot be described any other way.
