This salad is so light, summery and delicious!  So nice on a warm summer day!

If you are one of those people who buys salad dressing, give making your own a try.  It’s so easy, takes almost no time and is sooooo much better for you!!  No preservatives, no mono hydro blah blah blah!  Just good stuff : )

Raspberry Vinaigrette

What you’ll need:

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 Tbsp. (a couple big squeezes) agave nectar

1 Tbsp. dijon mustard or whole grain mustard

3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar 

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup fresh raspberries  

What you’ll do:

Using a mini food processor or blender, blend everything but the raspberries.  When blended, add the raspberries and blend again until smooth.  Drizzle on your favorite salad.  I like it on mixed greens with toasted almonds and some fresh raspberries.
