Holiday Berry Nut Salad

Start your New Year’s Eve festivities with this healthy Holiday Berry Nut Salad. I’m still finishing up with the leftovers from Christmas so I made this healthy salad using all of the leftover fruits, nuts, and specialty cheeses and cold cuts!

The dressing is a simple and light Balsamic Apricot dressing that pairs perfectly with the saltiness of the cheese and cold cuts!


4 – 6 cups of Organic Spring Mix lettuce

1 carrot (sliced thinly into shreds) (optional)

6 – 12 blackberries

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1/4 cup dried cherries

6 -12 dried figs (cut in half)

1/4 cup almonds

1/4 cup walnut halves

1/8 cup cashews

1 or 2 oz. of Goat or Farmers cheese (crumbled)

2 slices of Gouda, Portuguese cheese or any other you prefer

3 or 4 slices of presunto (or Italian prosciutto) (rolled)

3 or 4 slices of any specialty cold cuts of your choice cut into strips



1/8 cup of olive oil

1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar

1/8 cup of Apricot preserves

1 drop of mustard

1 pinch of salt

1 dash of crushed black pepper


Place the spring mix on a large platter and arrange the ingredients on top. Mix all of the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and serve over the salad directly before serving.

You can make this salad in the morning and serve later. Enjoy!
