Michigan Salad

I based this loosely on a salad that I've eaten at The Honey Tree, a restaurant chain in metro Detroit. Theirs has dried cranberries, nuts, and mandarin orange slices. Mine has dried cranberries, cashew pieces, avocado, and a sesame ginger dressing.

As bizarre as it sounds, I'm a vegan who doesn't really like salads. Lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, and tomatoes don't do much for me. But if you can make it a funky salad, with a little fruit or avocado or something out of the ordinary, then I'll love it.

I'm the same way...I don't usually make salads, and their usually the kind of recipe I'd skip over. But I don't mind a salad with a good balsamic vinaigrette every once in a while. I've actually never had mandarins in a salad before...its high time I try it!

My salad habits are similar to Melissa's - I love balsamic vinegar. In my lunch I'll usually just pack tomatoes with dressing and call that my salad. I enjoy cooked greens much more.
