Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette


We almost always make our own homemade salad dressings and using a fruit based one, like this Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette is a great way to up the flavor of an exceptional dinner salad while cutting the fat content.

Oil in dressings is meant to give it some body and help coat the salad ingredients but pureed fruit has plenty of body anyway so there is no need for oil at all if you are cutting back on fat in your diet.

Any of the ingredients in this simple recipe can be adjusted to suit your own taste. Add a little more or less of anything to create your own perfect version.
