Don’t be like Popeye the Sailor Man eating mushy and gross canned spinach just because you want to make camping salads using green veggies.

Serving a pile of the fresh stuff tossed with a sugary yet tart dressing and topped with some cranberries and toasted almonds is sure to be the rage at your Thanksgiving camping dinner feast! 

This Cranberry And Toasted Almond Spinach Salad Camp Recipe is quick, easy and a real crowd pleaser … and … you can make the dressing in advance and refrigerate up to 2 days!

Cranberry And Toasted Almond Spinach Salad Camp Recipe


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.
