It’s raspberry season! I remember taking my kids to pick our own fruits and veggies at the farmer’s markets. If you don’t have space to grow your own, then supporting your local farmers is the next best thing. Your can make a morning of it, taking the kids and showing them how fruits and veggies are grown in your own communities! You can then pick your own raspberries or other fruits and veggies that are in season at the time. You take them home, wash and enjoy them!
I still visit my local farmer’s markets but, am so glad that I can now grow many of my favourites in my own back yard! Yes, one of my favourites are raspberries! The cross between tangy and sweet is absolutely delicious. I have been making this wonderful dressing for a few years now and thought that it was about time that I shared it with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Raspberry Vinaigrette (Paleo/ Vegan)
1 c. raspberries- fresh or frozen
1/3 c. apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. maple syrup (or honey if not vegan)
2 tsp. dry mustard powder
1/2 c. avocado oil (or desired mild oil)
sea salt to taste (I use ¼ tsp.)
Put raspberries, vinegar, maple syrup and mustard powder into blender and puree.
Slowly add oil, blending thoroughly. Add sea salt to taste. Makes approximately 2 cups. Store covered in the fridge for up to a week. If you don’t like the raspberry seeds then strain dressing through cheese cloth, to remove seeds.
