This super tart cranberry dressing is the perfect gluten free addition to any fall meal, and is ideal for Thanksgiving. Cranberries are a superfood, rich in antioxidants. I like to sprinkle fresh cranberries on my salad when I use this dressing. Because they are so mouth-puckering and tangy, I spare my husband and children, by using fruit sweetened, dried cranberries as a garnish on their salads, rather than the fresh ones.
I found this recipe in an old Sunset magazine and adapted it, replacing white sugar and some of the other ingredients with ones that I prefer. I hope you enjoy this gluten free salad dressing; it’s autumn in a condiment.
1 cup fresh cranberries
5 drops stevia
¼ cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
¼ cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 tablespoon agave nectar or honey
½ teaspoon thyme
½ teaspoon dijon mustard
¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
½ cup olive oil
- In a vitamix blend cranberries, stevia, orange juice, lemon juice, and agave until smooth
- Blend in the thyme, mustard and salt, then drizzle in olive oil while motor is still running
- Serve over mixed greens
