Cranberry Apple Orange Viniagrette
Oh She Glows

Yield: just over 1 and 1/4 cups

Cranberry, maple, apple, and clementine make one lovely stand-out holiday dressing. This festive cranberry dressing is sweet with a light tangy aftertaste. Feel free to use more or less maple syrup to adjust to your own taste buds. You can also use any type of sweet citrus that you prefer.


1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup pure maple syrup, or adjust to taste
1.5 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp fresh clementine or orange juice (or use bottled)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp kosher salt, or to taste
Freshly ground black pepper


  • In a medium pot, heat the cranberries, maple syrup, and vinegar over medium heat until the cranberries burst, about 7-10 mins.
  •  Slightly cool cranberry mixture and place in a blender along with the rest of the ingredients (except salt and pepper).
  • Blend until smooth. Now add salt, 1/4 tsp at a time, to taste.
  • Blend again.
  • Adjust other ingredients to taste if necessary. You may want more maple syrup than I used. I liked this dressing with a bit of tart aftertaste to really let the cranberries shine.
  • Place in fridge to chill.
  • Should keep in fridge in an air-tight container for up to 5-7 days.
