Cranberry Apple Walnut Salad - A Running Salad Recipe

What exactly is Cranberry Apple Walnut Salad. It's a unique fruit salad that isn’t too sweet or too tart. A delicious dish for any occasion, but especially fantastic for outdoor gatherings. Serve as a side dish for your pasta the day before a race.

From – Julie Tiefenthaler


Serves – 8-10 people

Special Instructions – Prepare Cranberries the day before.

1 1/2 cup chopped fresh cranberries (I just chop them in half)
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup chopped green onions (They taste good in it, trust me!)
3 large chopped Granny Smith apples
1 cup chopped walnuts
(optional) Romaine lettuce leaves

Mix cranberries and sugar. Refrigerate overnight.

Mix lime juice, Dijon mustard, olive oil, apples, onions, and nuts. Marinate in refrigerator 1-4 hours.

(Optional) Just before serving, line plate with lettuce leaves. Pour cranberries in the center of the plate, and surround them with apple mixture. Enjoy!
