And as an added nutritional bonus, there are fresh, nutrient-packed raspberries in this dressing.  Not only are raspberries beautifully red/pink in color, but they also are rich in fiber and antioxidants. They’re perfect to keep your intestinal tract healthy and help to repair some of the damage done to your cells after a long day (their antioxidants will help mop up the damaging free radicals)! Try this homemade raspberry vinaigrette to add a little extra raspberry into your day, and your salad!
