Raspberry Salad Dressing Recipe with Poppy Seeds
The following raspberry salad dressing recipe is made with raspberries as well as raspberry vinegar and raspberry jam, so the berry flavor is quite strong. To contrast with that, the recipe also features onion powder, poppy seeds, and mustard, to add piquancy and different flavors. Use country-style Dijon mustard if you can find it. Swap the raspberry jam for mixed berry jelly if you already have some. You can use fresh or thawed raspberries, but since the dressing is going to be pureed you might as well use frozen ones because they are cheaper and will taste identical in the finished raspberry salad dressing recipe.
If you already know that you do not like very sweet dressings, you might want to leave the sugar out of the following raspberry salad dressing recipe, or you can add some at the end if you want to see how it tastes unsweetened first. This dressing would taste good drizzled over a spinach and strawberry salad or any leaf-based salad recipe that you want to make. You can add fruit to the salad without worrying about the overall salad flavor being too sweet. This raspberry salad dressing recipe is not overly sweet because the mustard and vinegar give it a contrasting taste. Raspberry vinegar still tastes like normal vinegar, not a very sweet one; it just has a raspberry flavor to it.
- 3 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
- 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon white sugar (or to taste)
- 6 fresh or thawed raspberries
- 2 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ cup canola oil
- Add the ingredients to a measuring jug or bowl.
- Puree with an immersion blender until everything is well mixed and the dressing is thick.
This unusual raspberry dressing is simple to prepare and delicious with all kinds of salads. Try it with baby mixed leaves, spinach, strawberries, walnut halves and blue cheese, or even over fish if you are having fish with salad. The sweet flavor of the raspberries contrasts so well with the piquant mustard and onion, along with the poppy seeds in there. The flavor is so well-balanced. Make this and you will find so many dishes to serve it with, anything that requires a touch of sweetness and piquancy in the same bite. This dressing is simple but oh so delicious.
