Salads: Cranberry and Avocado Salad with Candied Spiced Almonds and Sweet White Balsamic Vinaigrette/

kept byNonie

A medley of textures and tastes make this salad come together. Filled with wholesome ingredients like avocados, and boasting a complete protein with the almonds. This salad can be paired with a Bison burger or with a green juice to be a complete meal. Be sure to sprout almonds and use fresh dehydrated cranberries to maximize the nutritional value.

The cumin and the smoked paprika give just a hint of mysterious, delicious flavor – even though these are savory spices, these almonds are also wonderful served with sweets like ice cream or yogurt.
