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

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

  • 3 parts oil to 1 part your favorite vinegar. Add salt & pepper to taste and a dash of dijon mustard. I love this dressing!
