Warm Spinach Cranberry Mint Salad

This is a fantastic salad that is quite original and most likely to please as part of your special holiday dinner or add sliced chicken breast and serve on its own as a complete meal.



  1. In a small pot combine quinoa and water.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce to low and cover. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and leave covered for 5 minutes.
  3. Combine salad dressing ingredients in a small pot over medium heat, stirring constantly with a fork or whisk. Once mixture begins to simmer remove from heat immediately – do not bring to a boil as it will splatter.
  4. Combine salad base ingredients in a large salad bowl, including quinoa. Drizzle desired amount of the warm dressing and toss until spinach is evenly coated.
