Cranberry Vinaigrette

Until my sister introduced this recipe to me, I wasn't a big fan of vinaigrette dressings. This recipe, however, is more sweet than vinegar, thick and creamy. Served over spinach, candied pecans, cucumbers and feta cheese it was almost like eating dessert! It makes about a quart and stores well in the fridge.

1 Cup granulated sugar
2 Teaspoons dry mustard
1 Teaspoon salt
2/3 Cup vinegar (I used white vinegar, but use what you prefer!)
2 heaping Tablespoons Mayonnaise
2/3 Cup Craisins
1 1/2 - 2 Cups vegetable oil (I used 1 1/2)

Combine all ingredients, except oil, in a blender or food processor and process until well combined. With power on medium, add the oil in a slow and steady stream until the dressing emulsifies.
Store refrigerated in an airtight container.
