Raspberry Vinaigrette

Yield: Yields about 1-1/3 cups

This fresh sweet-and-tart vinaigrette adds a summery note to a simple green salad.


  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 3 Tbs. raspberry vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. grated orange zest
  • 1-1/2 tsp. fresh orange juice
  • Kosher salt
  • 6 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2/3 cup fresh raspberries


  • Combine the minced shallot with the raspberry vinegar, the orange zest, the orange juice, and a pinch of salt. Gradually whisk the olive oil into the shallot and vinegar mixture and add a few grinds of black pepper. In a small bowl, very lightly mash the raspberries, allowing them to keep some of their original shape and then stir them gently into the vinaigrette.

    Made this dressing and did as previous poster-put all in a blender to make it smooth. Excellent tasting dressing. Also added the 1 rounded TBSP of sugar. Loved the faint orange taste. Outstanding-you can't go wrong with this one.

    This dressing is excellent. I added approx 1 1/2 Tbs sugar to cut the bitterness of the fruit. I used 1 cup of frozen raspberries, it's what I had on hand, and put all ingredients in the blender to make it smooth. It was wonderful on a salad of baby greens, gorgonzola cheese, chicken, and sunflower seeds. I'll be using this recipe again for sure!
