With just a few ingredients and a bit of time, this sweet raspberry vinaigrette is perfect to top salads, use as a marinade for red meats, or drizzled on roasted vegetables.
It’s salad season! And raspberries are one of my absolute favorite fruits. I love using them to make raspberry jam, and then I actually utilize that jam to make this delicious, sweet raspberry vinaigrette recipe.
Summertime means it’s been super busy around here. We’ve been up to our eyeballs in gardening (and weeding), dealing with the new goats, and trying to stay cool in this heat. It’s been unseasonably hot here (I can’t even say warm, it doesn’t do this heat justice). And I do not want to turn on the stove or oven for any reason.
We spend a lot of our summer evenings grilling out, or making sandwiches, but a salad is great too, and it pairs really nicely with just about anything. I love being able to go out in the garden, pick out some vegetables, and put a salad on the table to go with our supper.
What I don’t like about salad is all the corn syrup laden salad dressings available at the store. We don’t care for the high fructose corn syrup, or the weird food dyes they add to them. So, I try to come up with delicious, homemade dressings instead.
I really like this raspberry vinaigrette, it pulls together very simply, and it’s absolutely delicious. It pairs really well with spice greens like arugula in a salad. But, it’s also fantastic as a marinade for meats (particularly red meats like beef or venison) and it adds a great flavor to roasted vegetables.
