Make this salad a standout by giving jellied cranberry sauce a festive touch by creating tiny stars or other shapes using hors d'oeuvre cutters.


  • 1 8 - ounce can or 1/2 of a 16-ounce can jellied cranberry sauce
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons coarsely snipped fresh sage or tarragon or 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf sage or dried tarragon, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 12 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 8 ounces cooked turkey breast, thinly sliced, coarsely chopped, or shredded
  • 1 medium cucumber, halved lengthwise, seeded if desired, and thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 6 ounces jicama, peeled and cut into thin bite-size strips (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 6 medium radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 of a red onion, cut into thin wedges


  1. Cut jellied cranberry sauce into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Using 1- to 1-1/4-inch cutters, cut 16 designs from the cranberry sauce slices; set aside.
  2. For dressing, place remaining scraps of cranberry sauce in a blender; add vinegar, sage or tarragon, salt, and pepper. Cover and blend until combined. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, toss together spinach, turkey, cucumber, jicama, radishes, and red onion. Divide among eight serving bowls. Add two of the cranberry cutouts to each serving; drizzle with dressing. Makes 8 (2-cup) main-dish servings.
