Raspberry-Red Wine Vinaigrette

With all the strawberries coming in to season, I have been going hog wild with strawberry recipes. Though there are no strawberries in this particular dressing, it does go very well on a strawberry and spinach salad (for which I made this dressing on this particular evening :)

1/2 cup fresh Raspberries (or 1/4 cup of raspberry preserves)
1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar
1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tablespoon of Sugar or Honey
1/2 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
1 small Garlic clove, finely minced
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil

Add all your ingredients, except the olive oil,  into your blender or food processor. Turn on your processor for about 30 seconds until all those ingredients have pureed together .

Then add the oil in a small but steady stream so that the dressing can emulsify:

And you will get a BEAUTIFULLY-colored, creamy-textured, and smooth vinaigrette!

Enjoy over a yummy summer strawberry & spinach salad!
