Health Rating


284 gm Baby spinach (organic)
1/2 cup Cranberries, dried
114 gm Feta cheese (organic)
1 cup Pecans (raw (can be roasted--recipe below))
2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp Honey, raw
1 tsp Whole grain mustard (can use Dijon or brown mustard)
1/4 tsp Black pepper (organic (freshly ground is best))
1/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil


Combine washed spinach with cranberries, feta cheese, and roasted pecans. Whisk together vinegar, honey, mustard, pepper, and olive oil, and toss with salad until evenly coated.

Roast nuts by baking in a single layer for 5 to 7 minutes in a 300-degree over. These can easily burn, so when you begin to smell the nuts, check them.
