Frozen raspberries make this Raspberry Salad Dressing enjoyable all year round! Drizzle it over your favorite greens, and highlight it with some delicious Gorgonzola or goat cheese.
I’m wearing my first sweater of the season. Yes, it is official, autumn is finally here (or perhaps I should say, it finally feels like autumn), and my fingertips are even chilled as I type this morning. Everywhere I turn, there are pumpkins and squashes, pears and apples, and the crisp thin air of fall. I may have officially embraced the autumn season, but I have to tell you, I snuck in a little taste of summer recently.
At last week’s Eggland’s Best Pink Party, my tabletop was composed of varying shades of pink – from the napkins to the flowers, the cookies and the cupcakes. Even the salad was dressed in a shocking, but lovely, shade of fuschia. Raspberry Salad Dressing was definitely a head turner with its sweet and tangy flavors. Drizzled over fresh greens punctuated by fragrant (read: deliciously stinky) Gorgonzola cheese and slivers of pecans, it was a fabulous salad to go with the savory bread pudding.
So even though summer is, by now, a fond memory, if you ever feel like sneaking in a bit of sunshine, put some frozen raspberries to work and make this gorgeous salad dressing. You won’t tan, but it will hold you over till next year.
Raspberry Salad Dressing with Frozen Raspberries
This Raspberry Salad Dressing is a simple recipe that begins with frozen raspberries. Add the berries to a food processor along with sugar, red wine vinegar, and seasonings. Olive oil is drizzled in while the processor runs and the resulting creamy dressing is delicious served over your favorite fresh greens. If you plan on making the dressing in advance, just be sure to whisk it well after removing from the refrigerator.
