Cranberry Walnut Salad with Feta

I might have said the Apples and Greens salad I posted on a little while ago was my favorite fall salad. In that case, this one is a close second. I'm not normally a walnut fan, but with the sweet/tart dried cranberries, the salty feta and the cranberry dressing they provide a nice crunch and flavor to the salad. The finished salad is a pretty, colorful addition to any fall meal, and the best part is that there is minimal chopping. Who can't enjoy that?
