Tossed Spinach Salad in light Mustard Dressing with Red Onion, Cranberries, and Toasted Walnuts

Easy salad, great to take to a potluck or party or just dinner. Very, very tasty and light. Oh yea, and spinach makes you strong! So eat up. Here is the recipe how to make the dressing.


  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey or dijon mustard

Whisk ingredients together and that’s it!

Assembling the salad:

  • 10 oz. fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup thin sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts for toasting

To toast the walnuts preheat oven to 350 F probably before or during making the dressing. Put the walnuts on a baking pan and in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Let them cool about 20 minutes before tossing in the salad. Or you could just top each individual salad with a few of them.
