Simple Raspberry Salad Dressing

This delicious raspberry salad dressing is made with mustard, garlic salt, basil and more, for a sweet yet tangy result. You can use Dijon or honey mustard for this raspberry salad dressing, or even another variety if you prefer. The piquancy of the mustard contrasts well with the relative sweetness of the raspberry vinegar and the sugar.

This dressing would be great drizzled over a spinach and strawberry salad. Raspberry vinegar and strawberries are a natural pairing, especially when you add a pinch of sugar and black pepper, so why not take advantage of how well those ingredients go together and serve this delicious dressing over a strawberry-based salad? You can add walnuts or cashews for some crunch, and perhaps some sliced radishes, mandarin segments or pineapple chunks for more color.

This yummy pink salad dressing makes a change from the salad dressing recipes you might be more used to, and it is certainly a lot better than any of the commercially prepared kinds. You can throw this together quickly and easily, and you will find plenty of tasty salads you can drizzle it over to add a tangy flair.
