Cranberry Mustard Salad Dressing

Cranberry Mustard Salad Dressing

Chef John

"This vinaigrette is especially gorgeous with a classic fall/winter salad palette. I served it over some endive garnished with persimmons, pistachios, and pomegranate seeds, and it tasted as bright and pretty as it looked."
