Cranberry Walnut Gorgonzola Balsamic

Yep, just like the one at Trader Joe’s made from ingredients bought at Trader Joe’s, but without all the added words we can’t pronounce and the added sugar. You see I found that cranberries on their own are pretty sweet. We don’t need to make it any sweeter. So here it is:

Ingredients:

1/2 cup water
1/3 cup balsamic
1/4 cup EVOO
Pinch sea salt & pinch o pepper
2-3 tbsp Gorgonzola cheese
2 tbsp walnuts
1/2 cup dried organic cranberries

Throw water, balsamic, EVOO, S&P and cranberries in a Food Processor. Blend until smooth. Add Walnuts and Gorgonzola. Pulse until bits are small. That’s it. If it get’s too thick in the fridge, add a little water and shake well.
