Jammy Vinaigrette

I had the spinach, celery, and Craisins for a tasty salad but no vinaigrette. And you can't just put ranch on that sort of salad. So I made this with homemade strawberry jam. It worked! I imagine any type of jam would work well.

Jammy Vinaigrette

1/4 C olive oil
1 Tb red wine vinegar
1-2 Tb jam
salt
pepper

Nuke the jam in the microwave for 30 seconds or until it's warm enough to stir easily. Mix the olive oil and vinegar with the jam until combined (in a bowl with a fork is just fine). Add salt and pepper to taste. If you like more vinegar-y taste, add more. If you don't like the taste as much, try less. This makes enough for a salad for about 4 people. Make a double batch and save the rest if you think you might need it.

Wow! That sounds really good! Now I won't worry if I can't find that Brianna's vinaigrette!
