Raspberry Lime Vinaigrette

Spring and warm weather is in the air. Fruit, spring veggies and salads are making their appearance all over at the dining room tables. I feel like you could use a new dressing recipe. I have a delicious Raspberry Lime Vinaigrette dressing for all your spring salads!

 Spring is in the air. I love flowers blooming all around and great temperature outside. Mid seventies is the perfect weather, it’s just beautiful outside. When we go to a walk and a jog, I am just enjoying the great smells all around.

It would be a complete perfection if it wasn’t for all the pollen around. It “snows” pollen in Florida like you wouldn’t believe. Everyone is walking around looking like Rudolph and my car is yellow, when in reality it’s blue. I like to play a little game in the morning as I drive the little man to school, I call it “who has a garage?” Of course, if the color of their car matches mine, they do not (hehe). During pollen season, is the only time that I enjoy rain…lots and lots of rain.

Now, back to the beauty of spring. Fresh, light fruit and veggies at the stores and farmer’s market. Your beautiful fruit filled salads deserve a delicious fruity dressing!

Even thought Ranch Dressing is my all time favorite, I like a vinaigrette on my salads as well. Balsamic is a great one but I am yet to try making it myself. (Yes, I’m sure that I will make it and share it soon enough.) Fruity vinaigrettes are wonderful too, especially in the spring and summer.

Raspberry Lime Vinaigrette
Serves: Makes about 1½ cups
  • 5 oz fresh raspberries
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp lime zest
  • Dressing:
  • Cooked raspberry mixture from above
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • ½ cup grape seed oil
  • 1½ Tbsp brown sugar
  • salt and pepper
  1. In a small sauce pan, over medium heat, combine raspberries, 2 Tbsp brown sugar and lime zest and mix well. Cover and cook for about ten minutes, stirring often. Blend the berries, carefully, with an immersion hand blender. Do be careful because the mixture is not too deep.
  2. Let the berry mixture cool to room temperature, in the mixing bowl.
  3. Add oil, vinegar, lime juice, sugar, salt and pepper. Whisk vigorously for a few seconds.
  4. Refrigerate in the air tight container.

    I know what you mean about that yellow pollen. We had it covering our car every morning and my nose was always stuffy. Now that we’re back north we are going to start all over again because the area we live in is allergy town — it is full of trees and plants and weeds etc. I do miss the warm weather — your recipe makes me long for a nice fresh salad. I really love the raspberry vinaigrette dressing. The color is beautiful — almost too pretty to eat :-) Have a wonderful day!!

    Lyuba, this is it…. You have created the perfect dressing! It was wonderful on our salad this evening; the combination of flavors is so unique! The brown sugar and lime are lovely and unexpected, and they combine beautifully with the raspberry. I’m planning to use some of it for a marinade for tomorrow night’s chicken! Thanks for yet another recipe that I’ll keep forever!

    That does sound delicious. I don’t much care for most sweet dressings – but with the zing of the lime and raspberry I think I’ll love it, especially on a fruit salad.

    Fascinating that it “snows” pollen! The pollen has been outrageous around here so far this spring….my eyes have really been feeling it! But as annoying as that is, I do love spring…especially for the delicious foods like raspberries! This dressing looks amazing!
