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.
