I love dried Cranberries and in my opinion, romaine is the best lettuce for a salad. Iceberg lettuce always has such a bitter taste that my tummy has a hard time digesting. This is a great salad to have with Beef and Guiness over Noodles recipe.
1 head romaine lettuce, torn
1 bunch fresh spinach, torn
1 cup dried cranberries
3 green onions, chopped
1⁄2 cup glazed almonds (instructions below)
3⁄4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
1⁄2 cup balsamic vinegar
1⁄2 cup olive oil
1⁄2 cup sugar
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons sugar
1⁄2 cup sliced almonds
Combine dresssing ingredients in a jar with a lid and shake well.
Combine salad ingredients in a large bowl.
In a sauce pan or skillet combine sugar and almonds.
Stir constantly until nuts are glazed.
Be very careful not to burn.
Pour nuts on waxed paper separating them to cool.
Mix dressing with lettuce and top with almonds to serve.
