    I have made this salad for several years now. The dressing is fabulous, in my humble opinion. I look forward to fresh cranberries in the fall so I can begin making this again.

    This is an excellent salad...I also added freshly grilled chicken. The next time I made it (being from Michigan) substituted fresh cherries for the cranberries also good.
