2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
4 medium-size dinner rolls, cut into 2-inch cubes (about 2 cups)
1 (5.5-oz.) package spring greens mix
1 small head romaine lettuce, chopped
2 cups coarsely chopped turkey or ham
1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
