Champagne Vinaigrette - Think Spring


With today's temperatures hitting record highs, you will think it's spring. This salad is sure to make you feel like it's spring too. Fresh greens, chopped apples and dried cranberries dressed in this light vinaigrette is the perfect salad for today. This vinaigrette pairs perfectly with the sweetness from the apples and cranberries. Enjoy!

Champagne Vinaigrette

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Whisk, either using a small food processor or by hand, the mustard and vinegar together. Slowly pour the olive oil in. Season with salt and pepper.
