Make-Ahead Tips

Camp Cooking Tip: When cooking a big Thanksgiving meal at the campsite make it easy on yourself and don’t try to do everything all at once.

For this spinach salad, you can make the dressing in advance (at home or at the campsite) and store it for up to 2 days in a refrigerator or cooler … then just toss the spinach, cranberries and almonds with the dressing just before you sit down to dinner.

Use the smallest Food Storage Containers required to hold your food because bulk packages are not your friend when packing for transportation and storage on camping trips.

Just make sure the containers have tight-fitting lids to avoid spills.

How To Make Cranberry Almond Spinach Salad

Step 1. Toast the almonds. In small skillet, melt butter over medium heat; add almonds and stir until lightly toasted. Remove from heat, and let cool.

Step 2. Make the dressing. In sealable jar, add sesame seeds, poppy seeds, sugar, onion, paprika, white wine vinegar, cider vinegar, and vegetable oil-then shake vigorously till combined.

Step 3. Toss the salad. Just before serving, in a large bowl, toss spinach, toasted almonds, cranberries and dressing.


In addition to making this as a side for our Thanksgiving dinners, I like to make it for easy camping lunches during our summer trips too.
