Recipe

Cranberry Vinaigrette

The bright flavors of this vinaigrette really make a salad POP. Because it is a puree, I like to spread the vinaigrette on the bottom of a platter, arrange my salad ingredients on top of it and then dress the top of the ingredients very simply with really good extra-virgin olive oil and sea salt. That way, the leaves do not become soggy and overdressed.
