Hey POPsters!!

The other night I went to a dinner party and I brought a deliciously healthy appetizer to share! I don’t know why I decided to film a video even though I was running late, but whatever, it felt opportune! Hahahaha. Here’s my recipe for one of my most FAVORITE salads in the word: Sweet & Savory Cranberry Spinach Salad! Takes less than 5 minutes to make and OMG the flavors are so harmoniously amazing.


Get a bunch of fresh, washed baby spinach!


Then top it off with some dried cranberries! I got orange infused ones just for kicks.


You can really add any nut but I love raw almonds. People usually use toasted pecans or candied walnuts.


I had to go to a pronunciation website to figure out how to say “Chevre”. Basically you just wanna crumble it on!

Then drizzle on the raspberry vinaigrette! I got this from Smart & Final. I am sure you can find versions of it at your local grocery store. Trader Joes actually has a very nice one too!

TADA! The final result!!! So so good!!!

Please give it a try! It could even be the appetizer you make for your honey this Valentine’s day! By the way…what V-day recipes do you wanna see on FOOD Bites? Tell me in the comments! I’ll be filming this week.

<3 you!!!

    Could you use just plain lettuce instead of Spinach?

  • […] Blogilates shared a delicious recipe for a cranberry spinach salad. It looks incredible (and healthy)! […]

  • Elena says:

    Yum! I’m making this tomorrow but I’m gonna use feta instead just because I have it on hand. Looks so fresh and delicious. Ooh for the Valentine’s day you should make something chocolate-y! :)

  • I think I’m going to try this tomorrow after the gym…I’ll make it at the salad bar in Whole Foods!!!!!!!!!!!!! Looks Delicious!

    Hi Cassey,

    You make cooking so healthy and easy. After watching Food Bites, I immediately run to the kitchen and try your recipes and cooking techniques. This coming from a person who used to think cooking was a pointless use of time. I was like, why cook when I could “eat raw,” with indisputable conveniance and benefits? You’ve changed me! Since you asked for a Food Bites suggestion, I will suggest a vegetarian stir-fry! If this idea fizzles out, maybe you could help find a way to make celery more than just my smoothie ingredient.

    Thanks for the salad recipe!

  • Amy says:

    This sounds delicious! For Valentine’s Day, something chocolate-y that I don’t have to feel guilty about eating!!

  • Megan says:

    I make a salad like this but I add apples or pears, and use poppyseed dressing instead. It’s super tasty!

  • kirillstorch says:

    is this ok for people with digestive issues?

  • Leonie says:

    This sounds so yummy!! :) But I would do it with Cassey’s raspberry vinaigrette dressing, she has a recipe for it which is really delicious! Thanks!

  • MMM Awesome. So healthy and fresh! Happy CNY!! looks delicious

  • https://healthyrevelations.wordpress.com/2013/02/09/healthy-french-toast-made-in-the-microwave/ This is my favorite salad i’ve ever made. It was soooo good yet sooooooooo healthy for you. Don’t you just love when you can say that about something?

  • Margaret says:

    Something clean and chocolate!

  • ann-kathrin says:

    Oh I hoped I’d find a cool self-made dressing recipe here. Could you create some dressings just out of what everyone has like oil vinegar yogurt mustard whatsoever…I need more variations in my salads!

    • Leonie says:

      There is a recipe for raspberry vinaigrette on here, just check the recipes, it is delicious! :)

  • Zia says:

    omg, looks delicious! I love trying new salads, so thanks :D

  • Ivori Rose says:

    I do not like the flavor combo of sweet and savory mixed together ; it’s either sweet or savory for me =D
