1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
¼ cup lemon juice
1 ½ tbsp honey
2 tbsp brown sugar
6 tbsp olive oil
1) Stir together the cranberry sauce, lemon juice, honey, and brown sugar till well-blended.
2) Stir in olive oil; it will take a few minutes' stirring to get the oil to mix well with the other ingredients, and if you refrigerate the leftover dressing (as you should!), you will have to stir again before serving.
3) Taste; add more brown sugar until you reach the desired sweetness.
4) Mix greens with blue cheese and other salad fixings, and then pour on the cranberry dressing!
The blue cheese is essential for bringing out the delectable flavors of this dressing, but if you don't like blue cheese you can substitute feta. I also don't recommend tomatoes with the Sweet and Savory Cranberry Blue Cheese Dressing--the flavors clash!
However, sunflower seeds or candied walnuts or pecans are good complements to this dressing; you can also use baby mandarin oranges.
