Looking for a quick and easy side dish to bring for Christmas dinner? Try my favorite Holiday salad. It takes minutes to put together and looks great!

Dana’s Holiday Salad

Yield – 12+ side dish servings

Preparation Time – 15 minutes

Cooking Time – 0 minutes


  • 2 heads of red or green leaf lettuce, washed and dried
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • 1-6oz container of crumbled blue cheese (add more or less depending on your family’s taste)
  • 2 cups Tammy’s Maple Glazed Walnuts [3] (these are simply amazing!)
  • 1-6oz bag of dried cranberries



  • Prepare Tammy’s Maple Glazed Walnuts [3]. The recipe only takes 5 minutes to prepare! These can also be made a few days ahead of time.
  • Tear or chop lettuce into bite sized pieces. Place in large serving bowl
  • Layer diced red onion, blue cheese, walnuts and dried cranberries on top of the salad. For the best presentation, do not toss.
  • Serve with salad dressings on the side. My recommendations include balsamic vinaigrette and creamy blue cheese salad dressing.
