I've posted this many times. This is my favorite salad. It goes beautifully with ham and is gorgeous to look at.


1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (I used raspberry vinegar)
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp. minced shallot
1 tsp. minced garlic (or a little less)
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 cup olive oil (original recipe called for 1 cup which I thought was too much)
1/2 cup lightly toasted chopped pecans
1/2 cup dried cranberries
salad greens to serve 8 (about 1 bag mesclun mix OR can use hearts of romaine lettuce)

Gently swish salad greens in cold water put through a salad spinner and into a salad bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and put into refrigerator. Put first seven ingredients into a small bowl and stir. Just before serving, add olive oil to above ingredients and emulsify (I used a wire whisk to incorporate oil well). Toss salad greens with cranberries, nuts, and dressing and serve.
