cranberry almond vinaigretterating:
I got the idea for this dressing from my love for Post Almond and Cranberry Cereal - I thought it was a great flavor combination. I like this dressing over a mixed green salad, potato salad (yes, it actually works) and even grilled salmon or warm roast turkey breast and glazed ham steaks at Christmas. I really love the colour of this dressing - whatever it touches looks so pretty.

1 level tbs finely chopped parsley
2 level tsp finely ground almonds
1/2 tsp hot chili OR red pepper flakes

Combine all ingredients in a screw top jar and shake vigorously till salt and sugar are completely dissolved.
