Cranberry Orange Vinaigrette Salad Dressing
1 cup Balsamic Vinegar

Wash and peel the navel orange, break it into sections and place in the container of a high speed blender (Vita-Mix type).

Wash and clean the cranberries and add to the blender container.

Add the other ingredients, but we suggest starting with only 1/8 tsp. of stevia until you have tasted the dressing.  More stevia can be added later, if desired.

Cover, and run blender at high speed until all the ingredients are smooth (about 1 minute).  Reduce the speed to slow and continue mixing until the dressing thickens.  While the dressing is thickening, taste it, and add more stevia, if desired, and continue running until the dressing thickens.

Store in a bottle in the refrigerator.  It will stay fresh for a few days.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
