This contest-winning Taste of Home Test Kitchen approved recipe w/its red & green-colored ingredients is perfect for Christmas meals. Dried cranberries & blue cheese make a great combo w/salad greens, apples, walnuts & a simple cranberry vinaigrette. It's also a much healthier alternative to the more typical high-calorie creamed salads, esp when you know you'll be eating a heavy meal w/a dessert finale. ENJOY!
