Go-To Salad with Craisins and Feta

This salad is great for feeding a crowd and for people who don’t really like  your run-of-the-mill salad – the dressing is sweet, and it’s topped with crumbled feta, mandarin oranges, and craisins.

Difficulty:  Easy

Baby Spring Mix

Mandarin oranges


Feta (crumbled)*

Sliced almonds, toasted (spread on cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 5-8 minutes or until very lightly toasted)

A few green onions, sliced

*The feta is better (less dry) if you buy it in a block and crumble it yourself, but the already crumbled feta is still very good and a little less work.

Serve with Go-To Sweet and Sour Dressing.


Since the toppings don’t require much effort (other than toasting the almonds which can be done ahead of time), this works well when serving large quantities of salad.

I like to place bowls with extra toppings beside the salad bowl for those like me who are really in it for the toppings.  I took this picture before adding the crumbled feta and dressing for bunco the other night.

The Story:  I call this my Go-To Salad, because that’s exactly what it is – the salad I almost always go to when I need to serve dinner to any size crowd.
