Walnut Salad with Cranberry Dressing


1/2 cup walnut halves

1/2 cup Mariani Cranberries

1/4 cup sugar

3 cups mixed greens

1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese

1 tablespoon raspberry vinaigrette

1 tablespoon white vinegar

1 tablespoon olive oil



Place walnuts and sugar in a skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves into a light brown liquid and coats the walnuts. Remove walnuts from skillet, and spread them out on a sheet of aluminum foil to cool.

Place in a large salad bowl the mixed greens, cranberries, cheese, vinaigrette, vinegar, and olive oil. Toss gently; add candied walnuts, and toss again.
