Raspberry Vinaigrette.........

If you want something refreshing this summer for your salads, give this fruity vinaigrette a try. It makes one cup, so you don't have to worry about having a lot of it around. I can tell you, it won't last long.

Raspberry Vinaigrette
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
1/4 cup raspberry jam
Whisk in:
1/3 cup raspberry wine vinegar
2 Tbsp minced shallots
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp fresh tarragon, chopped
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Puree the raspberries and jam in a food processor and strain with a sieve, discarding the seeds. Transfer puree to a bowl and whisk in the next 5 ingredients and season with salt and pepper. Then enjoy on your favorite salad.

If that seems like too much work, you can always buy Panera Bread's Raspberry Vinaigrette. It is fat free and has only 5 grams of carbohydrates in 2 Tablespoons of their vinaigrette. You know if it is Panera's, it's got to be good.
Till next time.........
