I made the yummiest salad the other night for a Christmas party we went to. I used the poppyseed dressing from this recipe, but used apple cider vinegar instead of rice vinegar. Then I added some orange juice into the dressing- a few tablespoons.
For the salad I put in:
1/2 large container of cottage cheese (rinsed in a strainer & drained)
1 orange, peeled & cut into small pieces
few handfuls of dried cranberries
few handfuls of toasted almonds
1/2 diced red onion
1 head chopped romaine lettuce, mixed
The salad was cleaned out at the party. It was a big hit!!
