Sarasota's Creamy Maple Brandy Salad Dressing

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by SarasotaCook

This is a wonderful easy dressing. Serve over some greens (romaine, spinach or arugula) with fall fruits, apples, pears, cranberries, nuts, caramelized onions, even blackberries or raspberries are great with this and crumble some blue cheese, gorgorzola, goat cheese, grated fontina or swiss - the combinations are endless. It is just a great dressing. My favorite salad happens to be; candied walnuts, romaine, blackberries, roasted pears, and caramelized onions. It doesn't get much better. You could add some grilled pork or grilled chicken and make a very hearty salad for dinner.

I used light mayonnaise. That's the only thing I changed. The taste is so good. I used more grated shallot. Thanks SarasotaCook :) Made for Bargain Basement tag game
