Cranberry Vinaigrette

One of the best salad dressings ever! Perfect for a holiday meal.


6 ounces (1/2 package) fresh cranberries

1/4 cup orange juice


1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard

3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 Tablespoon shallots, chopped

1 teaspoon fresh sage, chopped

Honey Tips

Honey Is Sweeter Than Sugar

Due to the high level of fructose, honey is 25% sweeter than table sugar.


In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring cranberries, orange juice and honey to boil. Reduce heat slightly and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring often.
Remove from heat and cool. In a blender or food processor, puree cranberry mixture. Set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, whip together mustard, vinegar, oil and cranberry puree. When dressing is smooth and thick, stir in shallots and sage. Salt and pepper to taste. Toss with your favorite greens or refrigerate dressing until needed.
