Raspberry Vinaigrette

This raspberry vinaigrette is so easy to make, and the results are fantastic!

We’ve used this vinaigrette on salads obviously, but it also works great as a dipping sauce or marinade for meats. If you have fresh berries and an extra ten minutes go the extra mile and make a thick raspberry syrup to use as the base of the dressing. If you’re short on time or berries, then just substitute raspberry jam for phenomenal results as well.

It’s just a matter of measuring and whisking to get a sensational dressing!

Raspberry Vinaigrette Recipe



  • 6oz raspberries
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (raspberry if you can find it)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons raspberry syrup


Step 1
This whole idea came about because these beautiful raspberries were on sale at work for $2 off per container. So, of course, I bought three with no plan whatsoever.

Aren't they gorgeous?
Step 2
I try not to use words like gorgeous because it makes my husband make fun of me, but seriously... look at them!
Step 3
I dumped a freshly washed 6oz container into a saucepan,
Step 4
and added 1/4 cup water and 2 Tbs. sugar.
Step 5
Stir together over medium heat, and bring to a bubble.
Step 6
As you stir, break up the berries, so that you're left with a bubbly mush.

Let it keep bubbling away for a few more minutes.
Step 7
The whole process should take about 10 minutes from the time you turn on the heat.

You'll be left with a delicious smelling ruby porridge.
Step 8
Ok so technically I guess it's not really a syrup as most people think of it, but for our purposes that's what I'm calling it.

Add 2 Tbs. of the raspberry syrup to a bowl.
Step 9
If you can find raspberry balsamic definitely use that here.
Step 10
Any balsamic will do the trick however, so add 1/4 cup of whatever is handy.
Step 11
Pour in 1/2 cup good quality olive oil.
Step 12
Set about the whisking.
Step 13
It's just a matter of a few minutes and some vigorous whisking before you're left with a thick, sweet, and tangy dressing.
Step 14
Now you're ready to spruce up any meat or salad.
Step 15
It's so easy and so good!
