I added 1/2 cup of feta cheese and the sweet, salty combination of it with the Craisins was wonderful. Definitely toast the walnuts for the best flavor. I have made it without the walnuts when I wanted to cut the fat and it was still good, but they do add to the salad. I used Girard's Light Champagne dressing since I didn't have the one called for. This is a keeper! Update: If you have a store that sells bulk dried cranberries, try them in this salad. What I bought are so much better than the packaged ones! I also heard a tip on TV that I've used a few times. If you're in a hurry and busy doing other things, put your handful of walnuts in the microwave for one minute. Taste and microwave 10-40 more seconds if they don't taste "roasted" enough.
