Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Homemade vinaigrette takes very little time and is so much better for you. You can control the ingredients and eliminate all the additives. For this vinaigrette you will first need to make your own raspberry sauce.

Makes 1 1/4 cups


  • 1/4 cup raspberry sauce
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsalmic vinegar or for a lighter version use white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon mixed dried herbs (thyme, basil and marjoram)
  • salt and pepper, to taste


    To make raspberry sauce cook 2 cups fresh or frozen berries with 3/4 cup sugar for 30 minutes on medium heat. Strain through sieve.

    To make vinaigrette mix all ingredients together in a jar with lid. Shake until well blended.
