Time to add a healthy spin to your Thanksgiving or Christmas table. Eating Well has a nice recipe for a festive Balsamic Berry Vinaigrette Winter Salad which features colorful greens, fruit and cheese tossed with a light and zesty dressing.


Servings: 8

1 tablespoon sugar-free strawberry preserves

1 ½ teaspoons olive oil

1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard 1 clove garlic, minced

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

1/8 teaspoon black pepper 3 cups fresh baby spinach

3 cups torn romaine lettuce

1 small cooking apple, such as Braeburn or Gala, thinly sliced

½ cup crumbled blue, feta, or goat cheese (chèvre) (2 oz.)

For vinaigrette, in a small bowl whisk together vinegar, yogurt, preserves, oil, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper.
