Mixed Greens with Brie and Cranberries

I featured a homemade salad dressing here a few weeks back, but today I want to share with you a tasty way to punch up some plain old mixed salad greens. My salads tend to be boring. Greens, tomatoes, cheese, topped with dressing. Adding in a bit more color and crunch has really upped my salad game this week when I tried this Mixed Greens with Brie and Cranberries recipe from Golden Blossom Honey.

 The toasted walnuts add a great crunch, and the cranberries give it a hit of sweetness. The two combined provide the salad give it a very mouth-pleasing texture. I wish I would have added the nuts and berries to my salads much sooner!


Ingredients
Dressing:
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Salad:
1 (5 ounce) package baby Romaine lettuce leaves
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted
4 ounces Brie cheese, cut into 12 pieces (about 1/4-inch by 2-inches)
