Fresh Raspberry Vinaigrette



My whole life I have had an aversion to eating savory foods with sweet additions such as eating pork with applesauce-which i still have never tried. I also couldn’t get why people would eat salads with fruits/berries such as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, etc.

Just a few weeks ago I tried my first salad with fresh berries and a raspberry vinaigrette. I was amazed at the flavors. Of course I had to run out and get the ingredients for a salad and a raspberry vinaigrette. This was the result.

This is a  beautiful, creamy, pink, sweet yet savory dressing that is currently my favorite. The salad with the dressing is absolutely delicious an beautiful too.

For the salad I just tossed some spinach on the plate and topped with fresh raspberries, some toasted, sliced almonds, some feta cheesed and then dressed with the vinaigrette. This is a total winner!

Fresh Raspberry Vinaigrette


  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  • Purée raspberries with vinegar and honey in a food processor ,blender or in a medium bowl using a hand blender until smooth. While puréeing, add olive oil in a slow, steady stream. Blend until combined.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Store leftover dressing in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

This was adventurous for me and I am so glad I tried it!
