Winter Salad with Homemade Cashew Cranberry Dressing

Ingredients:

6-8 cups fresh Greens ( I use a blend of romaine and kale)

1 cup fresh Broccoli, chopped

1 cup fresh Carrots, shredded

1 large, ripe Pear, thinly sliced

1 cup of fresh Blackberries

Seeds from a Pomegranate 

3/4 cup Sliced Almonds

Dressing:

1/4 cup Fresh Cranberries, rinsed well

1/4 cup Cashews

1/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar

1 tsp Mustard

1/4 cup Honey

1/4 cup Olive Oil or Sunflower Oil


Toss the greens, veggies, fruit and nuts together in a large bowl. Add all of the dressing ingredients to a blender and purée until smooth and creamy. Warm the the dressing in a glass jar in the microwave or a small saucepan on the stove, if desired. Dress the salad when you are ready to serve.  Store leftover dressing (in the fridge) in an airtight container for up to a week.
