Raspberries are one of my favorite fruits. I love adding fresh raspberries to salads and eating them plain for a nighttime treat.
We often buy fresh raspberries in bulk from a local organic farmer when they are in season and freeze them to use for the rest of the year.
Frozen raspberries are an enjoyable snack on their own, but we mainly use them in popsicles and in homemade raspberry vinaigrettes.
Homemade Raspberry Vinaigrette
Store bought vinaigrette recipes often contain high fructose corn syrup, vegetable oils, and preservatives. I prefer to make this fresh version instead and often whip up a batch for a lunch salad.
Any vinegar can be used in this recipe, but I prefer white wine vinegar or coconut water vinegar. I’ve also used kombucha before and it gives excellent flavor.
AIP: When I’m following my autoimmune diet, I use coconut water vinegar or kombucha as the vinegar in this recipe.

Not just for salads…
While raspberry vinaigrette is a classic salad dressing, it can also be used various other ways. It makes an excellent marinade for meats, especially red meat, or drizzled over roasted vegetables or potatoes.
