Holiday Feature


Spinach Salad with
Tangerines and Dried Cranberries

Serves 8


In the age-old spirit of Jewish cooking, this salad uses the foods of the season. It may be a prelude to the array of fried pancakes that follow or a refreshing palate cleanser between courses.


1 cup dried cranberries
8 cups fresh spinach, washed, stemmed,
   and torn into bite size pieces (about 1 pound)
3 seedless tangerines, peeled, pith removed, and sectioned
1 cup toasted pecans, coarsely chopped

3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
2 tablespoons cranberry soaking water
1/2 cup peanut or vegetable oil
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt


Soak cranberries in 2 cups hot water until soft, about 1 hour. Drain, discarding all but 2 tablespoons of soaking liquid. Reserve liquid and cranberries separately.

In a large bowl, combine cranberries, spinach, tangerines, and pecans. In a medium bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients until well combined. Toss with spinach mixture and serve.
