Here is another tasty recipe served at a Historical League meeting. Thanks to Pam Ryan for sharing it with us on the blog. Easy to make, healthy and great presentation.

Red & Green Salad

2 pkgs. Spinach &/or romaine lettuce
1 C. toasted almonds
1 pkg. craisins
Red onion
4 oz. feta cheese – crumbled
8-10 slices bacon – fried, drained, & crumbled

Dressing (enough for two salads)
½ C. each peanut & canola oil
¾ C. sugar dissolved in ½ C. wine vinegar, heated in microwave
¾ tsp. garlic
½ tsp salt
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp. white pepper
½ tsp. cayenne pepper (if you want more bite to your dressing)

Note: Pam suggested adding chicken to it for a heartier salad.
