Organic Cranberry Blueberry Salad Dressing Recipe

This post has been sponsored by Ocean Spray®. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

If you’re looking for a new and very delicious, organic salad dressing recipe, look no further! Organic ingredients are so important to my life, and Ocean Spray is now offering a line of three organic juice flavors (Ocean Spray® 100% Juice Organic Cranberry, Organic Cranberry Blueberry, and Organic Cranberry Apple)! YAY!!

I found mine at Kroger in the juice aisle, and actually picked up all of the other featured ingredients in the store as well. Luckily our local Kroger has recently been renovated and they’ve done a great job of making their fresh fruit and veggie section even more appealing than before.

As THE Cranberry Company, Ocean Spray is introducing a delicious, organic, 100% juice to Kroger shoppers who are looking for organic beverage products. Through their new product, Ocean Spray® Organic 100% Juices, they’re providing consumers with delicious tasting, affordable, organic beverages that the whole family is sure to love. Each has 2 servings of fruit, and is USDA Organic Certified, Non-GMO, Gluten Free with 100% Vitamin C, sugar, artificial colors/flavors/preservatives added.

In this post, I use nspiration from this recipe from Ocean Spray’s website, and I love how everything turned out! This organic salad and salad dressing combo would make an absolutely wonderful and nutritious side dish or main meal for an upcoming holiday get together.

I always love eating as many salads as possible, but a bowl of lettuce with a store bought bottle of dressing is not going to keep my interest or make me want to come back for more. Luckily, with the addition of so many awesome ingredients, this salad is going to be a weekly addition to my meals, and I know that having another salad dressing recipe in my collection will be great.

Packed with nutrients and a variety of colors and flavors, this delicious salad will encourage you to eat more fresh ingredients than ever before. Ingredients Make ervings SALAD 1/2 cup walnut pieces or halves 1/4 cup sugar 1 tablespoon water 1 5 to 6-ounce bag baby salad greens or spring greens 1 cup crumbled blue cheese 3/4 cup Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries Blueberry Juice Infused DRESSING 2 tablespoons Ocean Spray® 100% Juice Organic Cranberry Blueberry 2 tablespoons sugar 2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar or red wine vinegar 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup vegetable oil
