kicky raspberry vinaigrette

Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Tumblr

I’m tempted to figure out exactly how many of my  homemade salad dressing recipes I have posted and consolidate them into one post for your (and my) convenience. Maybe I’ll publish a little ebook that would be easy to print out and look pretty on your cookbook stand. Would that be something you’d be interested in? I’ll look into it.

Here’s my very easy, super delicious raspberry vinaigrette recipe. This is amazing on salads and also drizzled over goat cheese and served on buttery crackers for a simple party appetizer.

1/4 cup raspberry preserves

1/4 cup apricot preserves

1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar or raspberry vinegar

1/4 cup sweet chili sauce (I use Mae Ploy)

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Place all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk until smooth. Pour into a jar or cruet. This dressing will keep in your refrigerator for a month.

Enjoy Lovelies!

    Sounds great! Was looking forward to this. Does it have to be smoked paprika? I have sweet chili sauce from Trader Joes…it’s yummy/tangy so I will use that.
    BTW…LOVE your recipes! Thanks!

      Hello Leslie 🙂 you can use regular paprika if you like….and if your sweet chili sauce isn’t as spicy as you’d like, add a dash of cayenne or Sriracha hot sauce to give it that “kick.” xo

    Hi. I have copied and/or pinned most of the salad dressings you have posted. A consolidated listing would be wonderful.
