Mama Alman's Sweet & Sour Vinaigrette

Sweet and Sour Dressing

What you've gotta have:
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp. dried minced onion
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground mustard
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup olive oil
1/2 cup honey

What you've gotta do:
This one's easy. Just pour all of the dressing ingredients into your blender, and blend for about a minute. It will look like the ingredients are all blended within seconds, but keep it going for about a minute to make sure the sugar is dissolved. If it isn't tangy enough, add more vinegar, and if it isn't sweet enough, add more sugar or honey.

This dressing is served best over a spinach salad with pears or apples, walnuts and gorgonzola cheese.
