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

kept byPinkyMac

Ingredients for the dressing:
1/2 C sugar
1 ½ T poppy seeds
1 ½ T sesame seeds
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp dried mustard
1 T minced sweet onion
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 C white balsamic vinegar
1/3 C vegetable oii
1/3 C extra virgin olive oil
Ingredients for the salad:
12 oz baby spinach, arugula, field greens
1 small bunch cilantro, washed and dried, leaves removed whole from stems (discard the stems or use for another recipe)
2 medium avocados, peeled and halved
1 1/2 C dried cranberries
1 1/2 C Candied Spiced Almonds (see recipe)

Ingredients for the almonds:
5 C sliced almonds, or a 1 pound package
cup sugar
3 T butter
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cumin*
1-1 ½ tsp smoked paprika* – some smoked paprikas are quite hot, if you don’t like “hot”, just use 1 teaspoon and they will be mildly spiced.
1 tsp vanilla
sea salt
The cumin and the smoked paprika give just a hint of mysterious, delicious flavor – even though these are savory spices, these almonds are still wonderful served with sweets like ice cream or yogurt.
