Debi Mazar's Prickly Pear Vinaigrette

Actress Debi Mazar and her husband Gabriele Corcos, co-hosts of The Cooking Channel's Extra Virgin, were inspired to make this prickly pear vinaigrette recipe after a trip to the Grand Canyon. This dressing pairs perfectly with their Grilled Beet and Charred Corn Salad recipe.
