I got carried away making a salad the other day, I added mandarin oranges, dried cranberries, crushed peanuts and walnuts, grated a little smoked swiss over it and tossed the concoction with fresh mixed greens. I said to myself, "Self, this regular vinaigrette just will not do!" So I said a little prayer to the salad dressing gods and whipped this up. ;)
