Hello00, homemade healthy raspberry balsamic dressing of my dreams. This easy dressing is a fun twist on a classic balsamic vinaigrette with sweet notes of raspberry flavor that you’re going to love.

A lil’ sweet, a lil’ tangy, and SO freaking good.

I love adding this dressing to salads with other berries and fruits, maybe some creamy goat cheese, and quick grilled chicken. It’s perfectly light and adds a little decadence to the flavors. You could even make a quick balsamic reduction out of it and drizzle it on basically everything.
