Super quick and easy salad dressing to use up those extra berries. I'm sure this would be tasty with other berries too.

Cook's Note:

You may use a food processor or blender if desired to make the dressing very smooth. I personally prefer a bit of body.

Great salad dressing and using fresh ingredients makes it all the better! I cut the recipe in half to give it a try and I'm glad I did. I opted to use a white balsamic which proved to be a good choice. I just put everything into my mini food processor, gave it a whirl and it was done in no time at all. I let it set in the fridge for about an hour to let the flavors blend together. This was a wonderful dressing for "Strawberry Spinach Salad with Feta and Bacon" from this site. Read More

Far too vinegar-y even for a vinaigrette! Added more raspberries to balance it which worked but I will definitely decrease the vinegar the next time I make this. Read More

I decided to try this today for a salad for lunch. Being as I did not need that much, I made 1/4 of the recipe rather easily. I had frozen raspberries and they worked fine. I just blended all of the ingredients together in my Vitamix on medium speed about 25-30 seconds. I don't care for the raspberry seeds and they would get more processed that way. When I first tasted it, I thought it tasted way too acidic. I added a squeeze of agave syrup and it cut through that. Only other issue is the color. It has the color appearance of human blood, giving it that halloweenish appearance. So, basically, I would consider using a white plain or flavored vinegar, instead of the dark colored balsamic, if serving this to guests. For myself though, it was fine. Read More

We give this a 5 star rating, even though after one salad I strained out the seeds. I made half the recipe (you never know if you'll like it or not), and I made it as stated with the exception of the vinegar---I used half regular balsamic and half one that I found at HomeGoods recently--a white raspberry balsamic. Initially I was afraid it would be too sweet with the sugar and the honey, but after it sat in the fridge for several hours, it mellowed out quite well for our tastes. I will make this again for sure. We really liked it! I see other recipes now that would be wonderful using this recipe. Thanks very much! Read More

This is a fabulous recipe and most of the time I make it as written with one or two exceptions. Instead of just balsamic vinegar I use a good raspberry balsamic. Gives it added raspberry flavor. And when I do this I omit the honey as you don't need the added sweetness when using a high end balsamic. I have also used almond oil instead of olive oil or a combination of the two. I have even on occasion added a tablespoon or two of toasted sesame oil. Gives it a nice toasty flavor. Thank you mommy2two for a great recipe as is or to start from for little tweaks. Read More

There is far too much vinegar. I spent quite a bit of time adding more ingredients in order to make this dressing edible for me. I added more sugar more olive oil some brown sugar and raspberry preserves. Read More

I did not care for this. I kept thinking I did something wrong measurements something. Nope. Everyone I made taste it thought it was awful. Other recipes call for 2-3 TABLESPOONS of balsamic. 2/3 cup was WAY too much. Read More
