“A wonderful festive salad recipe from Penzey's spice catalog. The cranberries and dressing can be done up to 2 days in advance so assembly is a snap.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Spread cranberries evenly in a shallow baking dish and sprinkle sugar evenly over them. Cover tightly with foil. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  2. Cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until needed (can be done ahead, up to 2 days).
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together honey, vinegar, mustard powder, poppy seeds, salt, pepper, and orange juice. Gradually whisk in oil until blended. Use immediately, or refrigerate up to 2 days.
  4. Toss lettuce & oranges with dressing so that they are lightly coated. Arrange on chilled salad plates. Garnish generously with the candied cranberries.
