Winter Cranberry Apple Salad

This Winter Cranberry Apple Salad, is the perfect healthy dish, with all the sugary treats I've been eating. If you are looking for a healthy snack, lunch, or side dish, you have to give this one a try. Healthy eating has never tasted so good.

Holidays are rough for me. I have a bit of a sugar addiction, especially when the holiday flavors and candies are out. I have absolutely no control.

I have been craving some good salads recently, and came across one, similar to this recipe. It had figs and other ingredients I didn’t think I would enjoy as much, so I swapped it out for a few of my favorites.

I am also not one to make my own salad dressing, but this recipe is delicious. It is full of flavor, and tastes amazing on this salad.

I also like to put this dressing on a spinach and strawberry salad. So yummy, and incredibly easy to make. You will be amazed.

The best part is, there is no added sugar in the salad dressing, so you know exactly what you are eating, and it feels so good.

My body feels so good when I eat healthy, but let’s be real, I usually treat myself to a dessert after eating healthy. I am who I am, and moderation in all things.

Also, I love the bright beautiful colors in this salad. Believe it or not, it tastes even better than it looks.

looking for a recipe to candy your own nuts?

I love nuts. Any type of nut I love, but they are 10 times more delicious when they are baked in a sugary glaze. I can’t get enough of them.

And I don’t feel all that guilty eating them, because they are nuts, and they have good fats. Right?

For this recipe, I use pre-made candied pecans, but making your own is just as easy, and even more delicious.

If you are looking to make your own candied pecans, you have to try our Easy Candied Pecans recipe. It is to die for, and I literally just eat them as a snack most days.

 

what store bought salad dressing would taste good with this?

I am usually all about store bought dressings, but for this particular recipe, I love a good homemade one.

However, if you don’t have time, you could also buy one. Here is what I recommend:

-Creamy Poppyseed Dressing
-Raspberry Vinaigrette
-Citrus Vinaigrette
-Apple Cider Vinaigrette

Or any other sweet or fruit flavored vinaigrette, would pair perfectly with this salad. You will love it. I could almost eat it just plain without any dressing, because it has so much good stuff on it.
