One of our favorite ingredients that we often think gets overlooked during the Holidays is fruit. That's why we are so thankful when we get recipes like this Apple and Cranberry Salad sent to us by Julie Fuller from Melbourne, FL . Not only is it delicious, healthy, and a great meal by itself, it's also customizable and uses many of the leftover ingredients from holiday dinners.
Simple combination salads are perfect for summer picnics. They are easily pre-made and transportable in mason jars and can be shared or enjoyed individually. The key to creating these salads is using fresh, in-season, summer ingredients, tossed lightly with a simple oil, vinegar, and herb dressing.
