For vinaigrette:

Heat the mustard seeds, cumin, and coriander in a dry small skillet
over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until they become fragrant.
To this, add the carrot juice and simmer (over medium heat) for approximately 3 minutes or until it reduces by half.
In a blender, place the raisins and add the hot juice then leave it still for about 5 minutes (this is to plump the raisins). Add the cilantro, honey, yogurt, vinegar, crushed pepper and the ¼ teaspoons of salt and pepper. 
Blend until well combined then pour the ¼ cup of oil and continue blending for about a minute or until the mixture becomes smooth.

For the croutons:

Pre-heat your oven to up to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a medium sized bowl, toss the bread and 1 tablespoon of oil until they are well combined then spread a single layer on a large enough baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Stir once.

To prepare the salad:

Use a wooden salad bowl seasoned by rubbing with a pinch of
salt and garlic. Chop the baby spinach and the garlic and place these to the seasoned bowl. Pour ¼ a cup of vinaigrette over the greens then cover, and refrigerate the remaining ½ cup of vinaigrette for use within 3 days.
Sprinkle the salad with the cranberries, croutons, and cheese then toss well and serve.
