This is a salad I came up with while trying to make a salad I would be able to get my boys to eat. They didn't like it but everyone else did lol. I do have a version my kids liked I will post that at the bottom lol. There are no measurements, you can make it as big or as small as you like.

How to Make Spinach, apple, cranberry salad


  1. Mix in amounts that suit you the baby spinach and the triple hearts lettuce.Add your carrots, red onion, and cucumber if you like. Toss this well. Add your dried cranberries and apples then sprinkle the top with the fresh parmesan cheese and Enjoy!! I use a balsamic vinaigrette with this but any salad dressing should do.
  2. To make a kid friendly version for those picky toddlers. Mix together your dried cranberries, apples and carrots. Julienne a few spinach leaves and add to mixture and add a raspberry vinaigrette sparingly. My boys gobble this up.
