Make Your Own Vinaigrette

Why pay $4.00 for a bottle of vinaigrette when you can make your own for way less super fast! It’s really easy.  To pair with summer greens, a simple vinaigrette works best to bring out the fresh crisp flavors. I love to add a bit of raspberry jam or fresh crushed fruit to give flavor.  Here’s the recipe:

Quick Homemade (Raspberry) Vinaigrette

  • 1/4 olive oil
  • 1/4 vinegar of choice (I like apple cider)
  • 1 Tbs honey mustard
  • 1 tsp raspberry jam or 1 Tbs fresh crushed raspberries

Find a jar with a lid. Mix together oil and vinegar in approximately a 1:1 ratio.

Here instead of vinegar I used freshly squeezed lemon juice for added freshness.


Use a strainer to keep the seeds out of the dressing.

Mix to emulsify the two together.

Here you have your basic base. I usually add a sweetener to balance the flavor of the vinegar or citrus juice and mustard to give it a little body.

Here I used my homemade raspberry jelly (you can use fresh smashed raspberries as well) and a small amount of honey mustard, but you can use any fruit or sweetener you wish to try. Shake it again, and your dressing is all ready to go.
