Thanksgiving Salad

Thanksgiving is full of delicious treats that we get only once.  But when you eat all of those rich foods, you need something fresh to cut the fat of those foods and lighten up your meal.   This salad is perfect, filled with holiday flavors and very refreshing.  Try it on your table on Thursday- field greens with dried cranberries, smoked gouda, and a maple vinaigrette!
