Classic Raspberry Vinaigrette Recipe
Yields: 2 cups
Prep time: 10 min
1/2 cup raspberry vinegar
1/4 cup fresh or frozen
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup fresh
3/4 cup extra-virgin
In a blender or food processor, combine raspberry vinegar, raspberries, honey, and basil; whirl 1 minutes or until well blended. With the motor on,
add olive oil in a slow steady stream, whirling until dressing is smooth. Note: By gradually whisking or blending the

Store, covered, in the refrigerator. Serve at room temperature.

DO NOT OVERDRESS YOUR SALADS -
Too much salad dressing will weight down the salad ingredients and mask their flavors.
The dressing's role is to highlight not to overpower the salad ingredients. A
general rule is 1/4 cup of dressing for 6 cups of greens. As soon as your salad
is mixed, taste a leaf to see if there is sufficient dressing. If not, drizzle
some more over the salad, a tablespoon at a time; toss and taste again.
