Cranberry (Or Raspberry) Vinaigrette

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Garlic Chick

Recipe printed in the April 2008 edition of "Phoenix Home & Garden" adapted from Lon's Restaurant at the Hermosa Inn in Phoenix. If you want to make raspberry vinaigrette substitute 1/2 pint ripe raspberries, no reconstituting and strain after blending.

Made this in a pinch when I didn't have Raspberry Vinaigrette for a recipe. I also didn't have canola oil and substituted with Grapeseed oil instead. It turned out quite nice!
