This easy Raspberry Vinaigrette recipe is perfect for summer! It's quick, fresh, and crazy-delicious, plus its 21 Day Fix and Weight Watchers friendly!
Happy summer, party people! And really, what tastes more summery than a fresh salad with a bright, berry-forward raspberry vinaigrette? Ok, maybe a pineapple margarita, but still, this vinaigrette is for sure pretty high on that list.
Somehow my kiddos have just two days left on the school calendar before I've got a sophomore and a 6th grader on my hands <- shit is wild, you guys.
Anyway, I'm always looking for legit salad ideas for summertime (read: not boring salad ideas - do not come at me with a chicken, ranch and grape tomato salad, I just won't stand for it) and I've always loved a salad with some kind of protein (it's great with chicken, shrimp, salmon, etc), greens, blue cheese, candied walnuts and a great raspberry vinaigrette. Gimme that big flavor, baby. ⇓⇓⇓
However, I hadn't made that particular salad at home before because I'd never made raspberry vinaigrette before and when I would find myself thinking of it, I of course wouldn't happen to have raspberries on hand.
Let's do a quick Q&A and then I'll show you how crazy simple it is to make!
