  2. To make the dressing: put all the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until they are well incorporated and creamy. Alternatively, you can use an immersion blender or a blender to combine everything.
  3. Prepare salad: Toss spinach into a big dish, then add cucumbers, sliced avocado, goat cheese, onions, cranberries, and toasted walnuts. Add freshly cracked pepper on top.
  4. Toss the salad, drizzle with the dressing, and serve. Another alternative is to dish the salad and serve with dressing on the side so that each person can add their own dressing. Once the salad has been tossed in the dressing, it no longer looks as attractive.
