- 2-3 cups spinach
- one ripe pear (Bartlett or Anjou are good varieties)
- a handful of sweetened dried cranberries
- a handful of unsalted cashew nuts
- poppy seed dressing (Brianna's is our favorite brand)
Laura's Notes: I am unable to find unsalted cashews at the grocery store where I shop, so I just rinse the salted cashews in water before putting them on the salad. This makes a very pretty Christmas salad because of the red, green, and ivory colors of the salad. You could also substitute pomegranate seeds for the dried cranberries.
(I've previously shared two other favorite salad recipes, most delicious spinach salad and favorite summer salad).
