Cranberry-Feta Salad

This salad is addictive. Seriously. I am not kidding. Every time I think about eating this salad my taste buds get sparked and do a little dance in anticipation. I can simply catch a whiff of cranberry muffins, herbed cheese pastries, or roasted tomatoes, and somehow I am always brought back to this salad.

That is the magic of something so simply delicious that almost anything makes you crave it. Even if you are not a salad lover or even a salad eater. Give this a try. And be warned... it is delicious.

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Cranberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
