Merry Berry Salad ~ 12.1.10

This was such a happy little find on my one of my daily haunts: Write.Click.Scrapbook

Emily Pitts posted this in January and I made it once or twice and the kids LOVED it! I'm looking forward to making it this holiday season as it is so very pretty but tastes even BETTER!

Merry Berry Salad

Lettuce- depending on how many you are serving this can change- I like red and green leaf
1 medium red apple, sliced thin
1 medium green apple, sliced thin
1 cup-ish shredded parmesan cheese (I think feta tastes equally as delicious in this)
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted (or not)

Combine in a large serving bowl.

1 cup cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup apple juice concentrate (improvise- with apple juice)
1 tsp salt - I use kosher and 1/2 tsp, then taste
1 tsp ground mustard
1/4- 1/2 a small onion grated over the bowl (to catch the juice)
1 cup vegetable oil

Combine all (except the OIL) dressing ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. With blender running, slowly stream in the veg oil through the top until emulsified.

Drizzle over the salad right before serving. Refrigerate leftover dressing.
