This is a "repeat post" but I think it is a great salad to add to your Thanksgiving table!  



Ingredients:

1-8 oz bag of spinach
1-5 oz container of reduced fat blue cheese, I used about 3-4 oz.
1-5 oz container of vanilla or honey greek yogurt, I used Dannon's Honey Greek Yogurt
1/4 cup of white wine, I used [yellow tail] Reisling
1 cup of fresh or dried cherries or dried cranberries, halved and pitted 
Optional-your favorite nut; walnut, pecan, or almond


Directions:

-Rinse Spinach and place in a medium size bowl.  Add the blue cheese and cherries/cranberries and toss.
-Place yogurt in a small bowl.
-Add the wine and mix until blended together nicely, then set aside.
-You can either mix in the yogurt dressing into the salad until everything is coasted nicely OR serve it on the side, so everyone can add their own.
-If you add the nuts into the salad.  I suggest having the nuts on the side because if they are mixed into to the dressing they may get soggy.  The nuts provide a great crunch and should be sprinkled on top, they also provide a great presentation.



Healthy Eatings,
