Raspberry vinaigrette makes the ultimate salad, especially during the warm spring and summer seasons. Notably, the sweet and sour fruity vinaigrette recipe adds a raspberry flavor to the salad recipe. Having that in mind, you are sure to brighten your summer as it is the best time to make that dressing as it is the season of raspberries. I remember I used to eagerly wait for this season as it brought numerous goodies with it. Fortunately, we did not have to purchase the raspberries as they were readily available in the forests, making it easy for us to access and pick them. I found great satisfaction from the little treats of the forest provided by nature.
Typically, you achieve double pleasure with healthy and delicious raspberries. The fruits are full of healthy nutrients, including potassium, copper, omega three fatty acids, fiber, folate, anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, and vitamins C, E, and K.
Besides, raspberries provide a sweet and melting effect in the mouth when placed in the mouth.
There are several ways that you could dress the raspberry, but as for me, I like using it to boost my stir-fry veggies and experience the raspberry goodness.
Whenever there is a warm season, you rest assured that most fruits are in season, and it provides a perfect time for you to make a summer dressing. It includes the raspberry vinaigrette, which offers a fresh, bright, delicious, sweet, and fruity taste when drizzled on a variety of salad recipes.
Ingredients in Raspberry Vinaigrette
Most of the time, the stores may lack healthy dressing. For that reason, I never shop from the store for the product may contain dyes, additives, canola oil, soybean oil, artificial coloring, xanthan gum, sugar, and other things that might be unpleasant. Again, I do not find it necessary to purchase a product that I can easily make. Similarly, you will no longer need to buy these dressings once you realize how easy it is to make them at home. In fact, you may come up with a fragrant and fresh dressing than what you could get in the store.
As I prepare my raspberry vinaigrette, I only include red wine vinegar, salt, fresh raspberries, pepper, Dijon mustard, diced shallot, and olive oil. Note that you get all the difference only when you use fresh ingredients.
