Skinny Minny Recipe #2: Cranberry Walnut Goat Cheese Salad with Honey Red Wine Vinaigrette

Here's a fast, easy and cheap meal you can put together in a jiffy.

You will need:
(For 2 Servings)

For the Salad:
-2 1/2-3 cups of salad mix of your choice (we usually choose the Spring Mix or Arugula)
-1/4 of a Red Onion (finely sliced)
-8-10 Walnut halves (roughly chopped)
-5 tbsp of Dried Cranberries
-4 tbsp of Goat Cheese Crumbles

For the Dressing:
-1 1/2 tbsp of honey
-Dash of Ground Pepper, Kosher Salt, and Garlic Powder
-4 tbsp of Balsamic Vinegar
-2-3 tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Mix the salad ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.

In a separate smaller bowl, mix the honey, ground pepper, salt, garlic powder, and balsamic vinegar together. Use a metal whisk to mix the ingredients together.  When the ingredients are mixed together well, slowly pour in the olive oil while whisking briskly with your whisk.

Pour the dressing over the salad, and toss lightly with tongs or salad tossers.

Here's the salad with some baked chicken breasts. Yumm-o!
