Raspberry Lime Vinaigrette

This raspberry lime vinaigrette is fruity, tangy, sweet and I really love the vibrant pink color!

Usually we think of raspberries as something to eat for breakfast or dessert, but they can make a fabulous condiment as well. 

Raspberry lime vinaigrette is very easy to put together. Combine in a blender mashed raspberries, red wine vinegar, oil, a bit of honey and mustard along with some lime juice. It takes no more than five minutes!

We enjoyed it on a mango-avocado salad, but it would also be wonderful as a sauce, drizzled on meats, fish or grilled vegetables. It is hard to think of a salad that this raspberry lime vinaigrette would not go well on and it will brighten up your same old salad!

If using frozen raspberries thaw them completely before preparing the dressing. You can remove the seeds by forcing the pureed raspberries through a mesh strainer or you can leave the seeds, it’s entirely up to you.

Replace the red wine vinegar with balsamic vinegar, rice vinegar or raspberry vinegar. I’m sure this vinaigrette would be fantastic with other berries too.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.

I can eat salad for lunch and dinner everyday with this raspberry lime vinaigrette 🙂
