Holiday Salad

Course Salad
Author Adapted from Mom & Jeanne


  • 1 bag romaine chopped
  • 1/2 bag spring mix, arugula, or any mixed greens
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup grated Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup toasted slivered almonds
  • 1 pear diced
  • 1 apple diced
  • fresh cracked pepper

For the dressing (makes a lot)

  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup sugar or equivalent sugar substitute (honey, stevia-watch conversion measurements)
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup avocado oil or olive oil


  1. Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a shaker, bottle, or jar. Shake until all ingredients are well combined.

  2. Arrange salad ingredients in a large bowl. Dress with desired amount of dressing and toss until coated. Dressing make a lot, and a little goes a long way. Top with fresh cracked pepper if desired.

Recipe Notes

Try adding chicken to make it a meal, great for lunch prep!

I use an all natural sugar substitute to save on calories. Just watch the listed measurement conversions if you go that route, you won't use as much as regular sugar.
