almond, craisin salad.

Almond, Craisin Salad from Alisa:

1 head red leaf lettuce
1 head green leaf lettuce
1 pkg dried cranberries
1 package feta cheese, crumbled
candied almonds (see below)

1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp poppy seed
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Mix together. Better if you can do this (the dressing) one day beforehand.

Candied Almonds:
Melt in pan over medium-low heat:

1 T butter
3/4 cup sugar
Stir and heat until mixture crystalized (becomes liquid). Continue to stir for approximately 1 minute. Mixture starts to turn a darker brown. Stir in 1 1/3 cups slivered almonds. Spread on cookie sheet (sprayed with Pam) to cool and harden. Break into small pieces.
