With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Cranberry Orange Salad Dressing

Cranberry Orange Salad Dressing

I served this dressing on a mixed green salad with grilled shrimp at a going home dinner we had for our Spanish friends back in April.
We all liked it and I wanted to share the recipe.
Cranberry Orange Salad Dressing

PRINT RECIPE

1 cup cranberries
1 medium navel orange, peeled and sectioned (I used 2 oranges which made the dressing a little thinner, lighter and brighter)
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1 teaspoon grated onion
1 cup vegetable oil

In a blender or food processor, combine cranberries, orange, sugar, vinegar, salt, mustard, and onion. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady stream.

I love cranberry & orange combo...what a wonderful idea to have it in a salad dresssing. Making salad dressings is a choice I've made ~ at least I know what goes in and there's no bottle sitting in the fridge for who knows how long. :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Can you tell me what kind of cranberries you used? I have fresh (frozen for now, but would use thawed) and "dried" Craisins.
