A fun Friday offering! This salad has been brought to so many T-town committee meetings, baby showers, happy hours and get-togethers. Plus, you can find almost every ingredient at Trader Joe’s!
It’s a nice change from the chopped bag salads I depend WAY too much on. Feel free to increase or decrease the toppings based on your own personal tastes.
THE TRADER JOE’S SALAD
1 bag of Trader Joe’s Cruciferous Crunch
1/2 cup Trader Joe’s bag of shredded carrots
½ cup Trader Joe’s dried cranberries
½ cup sliced almonds (I think you’re getting the theme here – Trader Joe’s carries them)
Shredded parmesan to your taste
1/4 cup olive oil
¼ cup white wine vinegar
2 T dijon mustard
1 tsp. finely chopped garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all the salad ingredients, except the almonds and parmesan, into a large bowl.
Whisk together the dressing components and toss through the salad.
Top the salad with the sliced almonds and parmesan.
Toss and serve.
