I’m a sucker for a good homemade salad dressing, and am always looking for a new recipe. This fits the bill completely. And soooo easy (they often are) and seriously scrumptious.
For the salad:
a bunch of fruit cut up into bite sized pieces (apples, grapes, mandarins, strawberries, raspberries, melon, etc.)
sliced almonds or pecans (I like to sugar mine – equal parts margarine and sugar….melt and mix together in pan, add nuts and stir. watch carefully so they don’t burn)
Feta, Goat, or blue cheese….or asiago, swiss emmental, etc.
Raspberry-Poppy Seed Vinaigrette:
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup canola/vegatable oil
2 Tbsp raspberry jam
2 Tbsp poppy seeds
1 tsp salt (optional)
3/4 tsp. dried mustard
Drizzle over salad, toss, and ENJOY!
