Our friends invited us over for brunch and asked me to bring a salad. I wanted something light and sweet, but easy to throw together. While I kept this recipe parve, feta would be a perfect addition, making it even more appropriate for brunch.


Prepare the Candied Nuts


Set oven to 350F. Spread almonds and pecans into one layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle with maple syrup. Toast in the oven for 4-5 minutes.


Let cool on the baking sheet and break up as needed. Store in an airtight container.

Prepare the Maple Dijon Vinaigrette


Place the olive oil, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, and Dijon mustard in a container. Shake well to emulsify.

Prepare the Salad


Assemble the salad by placing the spinach, craisins, avocado, and cucumber in a bowl. Top with the candied nuts and drizzle with the vinaigrette.
