Fresh Raspberry Vinaigrette Recipe

Life is getting a bit busy as I am now 26 weeks pregnant and reality is setting in that soon our family will welcome a new baby into our home!  I'm trying to find enough time and energy to prepare for the wee one and continue homeschooling and think about next year's curriculum.

Part of the busyness is also finding ways for our family to eat healthier, which is a lifelong goal for sure!

I love eating salads and preparing salads for my family.  I stumbled upon a homemade raspberry vinaigrette recipe from All You magazine, July 2012 edition that I want to share.  I wanted to try it out because I was tired of paying for the vinaigrette dressings at the store. It's really quite tasty and delicious!  Along with this dressing, I love putting various veggies on my salad, along with cut up strawberries and sprinkle various types of sweetened granola cereal on top.  Lately, I've been using the Pumpkin Flax Granola cereal from Costco to top my salads.  Yum! :)


Prep: 5 min.
Yield: 3/4 cup
Cost per serving: 49 cents

1/2 cup fresh or frozen (thawed) raspberries
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup canola oil

Place raspberries in a bowl and crush with a fork.  Whisk in remaining ingredients until will blended. (I used my Vitamix blender to make the mixture smoother.) Cover and chill.  Whisk just before using. 


This week I'm linking up with Lisa's Recipe Link at Home to 4 Kiddos where others link up to share their recipes also:
