Cranberry-Almond Vinaigrette

Rated as 3.86 out of 5 Stars

"I got the idea for this dressing from my love for Post Cranberry and Almond Cereal - I thought it was a great flavor combination. I like this dressing over a mixed green salad, potato salad (yes, it actually works) and even grilled salmon or warm roast turkey breast and glazed ham steaks at Christmas. I really love the color of this dressing - whatever it touches looks so pretty."

Very easy and delicious. Great with a simple salad (I used goat cheese and toasted almonds).

I had a spicy cranberry vinaigrette at a wedding I attended and loved it. This was the closest recipe I could find. The first time I made it, it was so salty... I didn't like the flavor at all. ...

I loved it- of course, I did change some things. I used cranberry-pomegranate juice because it was what I had on hand. I eliminated the salt, used green onions from the garden instead of shallot...

I really expected more flavor. This vinaigrette has no vinegar. I think it needs a bit to give it some tang. I cut the salt to 1 tsp, but still thought the end result was too salty. I can't say ...

It sounded good but just wasn't what I expected.

So good! I made this to go over feta-stuffed chicken on a bed of fresh spinach. It was delicious.
