Preparing the Salad


Making the Salad:

  1. Add spinach, apples, red onion, walnuts, dried cranberries, and half of the goat cheese to a large bowl.  Drizzle with the vinaigrette, and toss to combine.
  2. Serve immediately, garnished with the remaining goat cheese.


Making the Vinaigrette:

Add all ingredients together in a bowl and whisk to combine.  Or, add all ingredients to a mason jar, cover, and shake to combine.
