Oh my gosh...this salad was sooooooooooo good. I used Laughing Cow Herb and Garlic soft cheese instead of the Brie and used regular sliced almonds (because that is what I had on hand).
Enjoy!

1/4 pound wedge Brie cheese, sliced
1/4 cup smoked whole almonds

In microwave bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar and mustard. Stir in cranberries. Microwave 15 seconds or until cranberries plump. With slotted spoon, remove cranberries.

PEG’S NOTES:
I wasn’t sure if we like Brie so I didn’t want to spend the money on it, so I used several wedges of “Laughing Cow Garlic and Herb soft cheese” and it was wonderful!! I also just used regular sliced almonds because I had them, but I am sure the smoked almonds would really make it tasty.
