Hello there. 
A simple salad dressing recipe for you today, dear reader. 

Raspberry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette…to be exact and precise. Everyone needs a recipe like this tucked away in their back pocket, wouldn’t you agree? A great warm weather standard. Put it on any salad of your choice (or come on back tomorrow to see the lovely salad I made to go with it). This dressing is sweet and tangy with a great berry flavor. It’s made with basic pantry staples, comes together in a matter of minutes and tastes far superior to purchased dressing. 

Make it, and love it…won’t you?

Raspberry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette
Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 1 1/2 Cups
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!
3 T red onion, chopped
3 T raspberry jam (or strawberry, mixed berry, boysenberry…any berry jam will do)
1/4 C sugar
1/2 C + 2 T red wine vinegar
1 T honey mustard
1/2 t salt
1/2 C vegetable oil
1 T poppy seeds 

1. Chop yourself some red onion. Place 3 tablespoons worth into a blender, or if you have an immersion blender toss them into a tall jar. 

2. Add 3 tablespoons raspberry jam, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon honey mustard and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Blend it until it’s well combined. 

3. Add 1/2 cup oil to the blending jar, just a little bit at a time, blending after each portion is added. If you add all of the oil at once the dressing will be really thin and runny. Just add about 2 tablespoons at a time and all will be well. 

4. Add 1 tablespoon of poppy seeds to the dressing

and stir it in with a spoon. Don’t blend the poppy seeds in, just give them a nice stir. Serve over a salad of your choice and enjoy! Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
