When I was at university, I was on a serious budget and was eating lots of salads and other inexpensive food. Buying a bottle of salad vinaigrette or dressing was a “hard” decision because, first I could only afford one and second, I’ve always been the type of person that loves variety so buying just one wasn’t fun!
This is when I decided to start making my own vinaigrettes and later in life I started experimenting with dressings. I remember the first couple vinaigrettes I made were not a hit….they were oily, greasy and tasteless. Then I started adding more ingredients until I started to understand the nuances of it…which by the way is very simple.
This recipe I’m about to share with you is not one of my first experiments…lucky for you…lol! It is one that I have developed over the years and only experimented with on my closest friends…yes, they are still my friends… All joking aside, I love making this one during summer time because it is light and “summery”…c’mon there’s raspberries in it, of course it’s a totally summer vinaigrette! Although I use this vinaigrette all year round, summer seems the best time to enjoy it…
FOOTNOTE: If you want, add 2-3 chopped fresh raspberries in the vinaigrette. For Measuring Honey or Molasses without sticking, go to "TIPS & TRICKS" section for more info.
