I always enjoy making my own salad dressings, I mean they are so easy to make, taking no more than five minutes, and they are so much better than store bought! In the summer homemade dressings get particularly interesting both in the fact that I am eating a lot more salads and because there are so many fresh fruits and berries that can be using in the dressings. When I saw some raspberries at the market I could not help but think of one of my favourite dressings, a raspberry balsamic vinaigrette and I picked some up to make it. This dressing is super simple, consisting of mashed raspberries, white balsamic vinegar, oil, a bit of honey and mustard along with some garlic and it does literally only moments to make! It is hard to think of a salad that this raspberry balsamic vinaigrette would not go well on and it can elevate even the plainest of salads from ordinary to truly spectacular!

A fresh raspberry white balsamic vinaigrette that will make any summer salad a true delight!

- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

I love this this dressing! It sounds simple, but perfect at the same time. The raspberries and balsamic sound like an incredible flavor combo!

I grew up eating only homemade salad dressings, but always wanted the store bought ones when out my friends in high school… now, store bought = bleech (most of them lol). Can't wait to try this one out!
