This is a family favorite that I serve every year at Christmas. It has minimal ingredients and a more healthy option than most Traditional Christmas salads. It has good ingredients, healthy fats and packed with flavor. You can serve this room temperature or chilled from the fridge.
1 1/4 cup Spinach, chopped into small pieces
1 cup cooked quinoa
For the dressing:
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1/4 cup olive oil
- In a bowl combine the maple syrup, mustard, vinegar and the olive oil and whisk together until well combined. Set aside.
- In a large bowl add the quinoa, spinach, and cranberries. toss well to mix.
- Pour over the dressing and toss to coat well.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
