cranberry dressing

cranberry dressing

After making those cranberry muffins, I still had leftover cranberry sauce. I came across recipes for salad dressing using cranberry sauce and proceeded to try out a few of them. The dressings are generally sweet and tangy (due to the vinegar). They would probably go best with a mixed green leaf salad or arugula greens. They aren’t my favorite dressings, but this sure is a good way to use up the cranberry sauce.

The dressings are a beautiful pink and would be a great dressing to have on salads if you are hosting a “pink” themed party.
