Instructions

Dressing

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth.

Sugared Almonds

  1. In a small nonstick saucepan over medium high heat, combine 1/2 cup of sliced almonds and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Stir continuously until the sugar begins to melt and coat the almonds. The almonds will also start to turn golden brown. When you see the almonds begin to brown slightly, pour the sugared almonds onto a piece of wax paper and spread them out. Sprinkle a little salt over the almonds while they are still warm, and then allow them to cool completely.

Salad

  1. Place the mixed baby greens into a large bowl or platter. Sprinkle on the feta cheese, apple slices, pomegranate seeds, and sugared almonds. Top with the cranberry vinaigrette and toss to coat.
