This turned out a very nice presentation. Loved the tangy sweetness and crunchy textures. The little bits of sweet/sour cranberries and toasted walnuts fit a fall and winter theme.

An excellent recipe that is both healthy and delicious. The only difference I made was that I lightly toasted the walnuts for 8 minutes at 350 F to bring out the wonderful fragrance. The end result was wonderful.
