Spinach, Cranberry & Goat Cheese Salad

“One of the local grocery stores, Nugget Market, has a very nice prepared food section. One Easter we tried their Spinach, Cranberry and Goat Cheese Salad and I fell in love with it. Back in 2009 my Mom came up with her version of the accompanying Raspberry Poppy Seed Dressing. A decade later I realize that I should include the salad portion in our cookbook as well. In looking at other recipes online, I saw that some people also add pear to similar salads and it is a great optional addition.” – April Ferre
