Cranberry Vinaigrette and Giveaway

Salt and Pepper Mill giveaway following the recipe!

Cranberries are a big thing in our house this time of year. I love the sweet/tart combination of them. It is one of my favorite salad dressings to make. So simple to make, and so tasty! It also lends itself to this time of year because of its festive color. Here is how I make mine!

Cranberry Vinaigrette 

1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup fresh cranberries
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Wash and drain your cranberries. Add the cleaned cranberries and all other ingredients to a blender. Process until smooth. Store in the fridge until you are ready to serve. It lasts 3 weeks in an airtight container in the fridge. 

Today's Giveaway: Salt and Pepper Mills from Peugeot
Peugeot of France created the pepper grinder in 1842. The patented design of the grinding mechanism created by a company engineer for the first Peugeot pepper mills is still in use today, virtually unchanged. Often copied, but never equaled, the mechanism made of case hardened steel is designed to crack the peppercorns before the actual fine grinding process.
Made of select French beech wood and available in the following finishes: natural or chocolate varnish; red lacquer; and black or whit matte enamel. The grind is adjusted by turning the top nut: turn it clockwise (tighten) for a finer grind; counter-clockwise (loosen) for a coarser grind.
