This raspberry vinaigrette recipe is fresh, simple and absolutely delicious over almost any salad!
There’s a lot to be said for raspberry vinaigrette. It brings a marvelously sweet yet tangy and refreshing flavor to any salad you put it on.
I recently did a recipe for Clean Eating Strawberry Vinaigrette that is actually somewhat similar to this one. But the difference in flavors is pretty marked. If you’ve never tried a good raspberry vinaigrette, I highly recommend it!
HOW LONG DOES HOMEMADE RASPBERRY VINAIGRETTE LAST?
If stored properly in the fridge, this dressing can last up to two weeks. But always do a quick sniff test after the first 5 days to be sure.
DOES RASPBERRY VINAIGRETTE HAVE GLUTEN?
While many bottled dressings do contain gluten, this homemade version does not.
DO YOU NEED TO REFRIGERATE VINAIGRETTE?
Generally, with plain vinaigrette, not if you are using it regularly. However, once you add other ingredients like the raspberries in this recipe, (or fresh herbs or garlic), you’ll definitely want to store it in the fridge at all times
