Spring Salad Dressing

This delicious and very simple salad dressing comes from my sister Emily. Although the list of ingredients is short, this is very flavorful. I can't believe how good this is.

1 cup canola oil
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup red wine vinegar (white or apple cider works too)
2 garlic cloves, minced (I used prepared chopped garlic)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Combine above ingredients and serve. This dressing works well with baby spinach or other greens; fruit such as chopped apple, mandarin oranges, red grapefruit, or seasonal berries; avacado, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, and sugared pecans. For sugared pecans, combine 1 cup nuts and 1 cup sugar with 1-2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium/low heat; cook until sugar melts (watch carefully!)
