Any suggestions on a tasty vinagrette?

I love vinagrette's but can't seem to find a good bottled one. Any EASY recipes or suggestions on a bottled vinagrette? Something light that'll go well with a mixed green, feta, and cranberry salad. Thanks!

  • I mix 3 parts olive oil, 1 part balsalmic vinegar, add salt & pepper and lots of thyme. It's really easy and good.

  • Here's a recipe I found after googling the ingredients in your salad :D

    * 2/3 cup sugar or Splenda sugar substitute (if you prefer a tarter dressing, cut back on the sugar some)
    * 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
    * 1 cup extra virgin olive oil (no substitutes)
    * 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
    * 1 teaspoon paprika
    * 1 teaspoon salt

  • #1
    To prepare dressing, warm wine vinegar slightly.
    #2
    Add sugar and stir to dissolve.
    #3
    If you don't warm the vinegar, you will have trouble getting the sugar to dissolve.
    #4
    Allow to cool.
    #5
    Add onion, paprika and salt.
    #6
    Stir well.
    #7
    Add olive oil and blend.
    #8
    I prefer to put it in a bottle and shake it.
    #9
    Pour over salad and enjoy!
