Cranberry & Feta Salad With a Crunch

Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Remember last week how we talked about how delicious fresh foods are in the summertime, and how we just seem to crave those easy, light meals even more when the weather is warm? Well, I'm back today to share one more recipe -- although, I don't think I can keep a straight face calling it that. Basically, this is the easiest thing you'll make all week and you can have it for lunch or as a side with dinner! It was one of those salads that I threw together using the contents of my fridge/pantry and now I can't stop eating it!

Feta & Cranberry Salad with a Crunch

You'll need:

Lettuce blend of choice (I used veggie lovers for extra substance) -- spinach would be tasty too!

Reduced fat, crumbled feta cheese

Craisins (or any brand of dried cranberries)

Unsalted sunflower seeds

Dressing of choice (I recommend a vinaigrette, but if you prefer creamy dressing I think a poppyseed dressing would be delish)

Start with a bed of lettuce and mix in your desired amount of toppings. I tried (triiiied so hard) to keep the feta and cranberries to a minimum to reduce the fat/sugar but man, I love both. Start with a pinch of everything and go from there! You could easily add a protein like chicken, turkey, or tofu to this to make it a little heartier, too.

If you have any winning salad combos, I'm all ears! Lunch is always the hardest meal for me to eat purposefully and healthily, so new inspiration always helps. Happy Wednesday, friends!


  1. This sounds so good! I love dried Cranberries and can't wait to be able to eat some feta again.

    1. I think soft cheese is the thing I missed most during both pregnancies! And I'm addicted to dried cranberries. So tasty!

  2. Cranberries and feta are such a delicious combo!! I love salads but am so bad at making them for lunch!

    1. I am, too! Lunch rolls around and I end up eating a handful of goldfish. I'm hoping I can get into a groove of making yummy salads as a healthy and delicious alternative to kids' snacks. ;)
