If you’re old enough to remember dining out in the 1980s, you might recall raspberry vinaigrette as a staple on restaurant menus, thanks to the California cuisine trend. This tangy and sweet dressing is perfect for adding a burst of fruity flavor to just about anything. It’s wonderful on my spinach salad with berries, pecans and goat cheese, but don’t stop there—try it with a simple mixed greens, drizzled over grilled chicken, or even as a tangy marinade. Whenever you need a touch of sweet and tangy, this vinaigrette is your go-to!
