Here’s What You Need To Make Sugar Free Cranberry Lemon Vinaigrette: ​

Ingredients:

Sugar Free Cranberry Lemon Vinaigrette

Recipe Notes:

Homemade Cranberry Sauce: We made our sugar free cranberry sauce ahead of time. In fact, we actually had some leftover from Thanksgiving. It will store in the fridge for about 7 days. You can freeze it for a few months if you like.

Since we are using this sauce in a dressing, we recommend sweetening with allulose or stevia drops. We don’t want the the dressing to crystallize when it gets refrigerated.

For this dressing, we would also recommend omitting the vanilla extract and ground cinnamon from the original cranberry sauce recipe so that we have a more neutral base to work from.

Sweeteners: Please always take our sweetness suggestion as a guide, and sweeten to taste! For this recipe, we recommend using allulose or stevia drops, like stated above. We don’t want the dressing to crystallize in the fridge when storing. Just note if you use another sweetener, this will likely happen, and you will need to let the dressing come to room temperature for about an hour or 2 before using. We’d also like to mention that the cranberry sauce itself has a lot of sweetness to it, so keep this in mind when adding additional sweetener.

Herbs: The amount of sage suggested is based on dried, rubbed sage. If you want to sub for fresh sage, we recommend about 7 whole sage leaves per 1 tsp of dried, rubbed (ground) sage. We think using fresh would be great, and you likely have a lot of it sitting around this time of year!
