easy raspberry vinagrette

11 Dec

i love to make my own salad dressing because i can control how much oil goes in. and also, it just tastes fresher, and also, i just feel super accomplished when i eat my salad. so, there are two ways to make raspberry vinagrette (or rather, two ways that i use). the first way is to add fresh or frozen raspberries to some white vinegar and heat up over medium heat, whisking often until the raspberries are melted down about half way and the vinegar is red and smells like raspberries. then, you can combine this raspberry vinegar with a bit of honey and then whisk in as much oil as you’d like until the vinaigrette is fully emulsified. the second way is quicker. if i ever have fruit preserves on hand i use it to make any kind of fruit vinaigrette, its what i used this time around.

combine about 1/8 cup of raspberry preserves, 1/8 cup of red wine vinegar, salt and pepper in a bowl. whisk in some canola or olive  oil until desired consistency and flavor is reached!!


toss with some yummy arugula, avocado and raspberries 🙂
