Have you ever caught yourself cross-eyed, staring at a meagerly supplied refrigerator? Recently we found ourselves in a similar situation, coming up with any and all bizarre permutations of ingredients. More a frustrating homework problem than an interesting newspaper puzzle, we needed to fill out our meal with something novel, and like most solutions in life, the simplest is usually the best. A few carrots, dressing, and dried cranberries made for a simple supplement to our otherwise small meal. But don’t feel limited by its simplicity! The recipe is simple enough to allow personal touches with any additional ingredients to increase the complexity of the flavors, or if you prefer something straightforward and humble, yet enjoyable, follow along with this recipe!
