Instructions
  1. To prepare the dressing, place all the ingredients in a small jug and using a whisk or battery operated coffee frother, whisk until thick and creamy. Keep aside.
  2. Peel, halve and deseed the cucumber. Chop into juliennes.
  3. Peel, core and slice the apple and pear.
  4. Halve the cherry tomatoes.
  5. Wash the salad greens 2-3 times in changes of water, pat dry or dry in a salad spinner.
  6. Take a large bowl. Tear the greens into bite sized pieces and add to the bowl, with the cucumber, apple, pear, cherry tomatoes and cranberries.
  7. Add the dressing and toss gently until well coated.
  8. Top with toasted almonds. Garnish with edible flowers, if you happen to have access to them and serve immediately. I have garnished with dill flowers here 🙂
