Mango Raspberry Vinaigrette

Mango Raspberry Vinaigrette | by Life Tastes Good is a little bit sweet, a little bit tangy, and a whole lot tasty! #SaladDressing #FruitMango Raspberry Vinaigrette is a little bit sweet, a little bit tangy, and a whole lot tasty! The tang reminds me of a french dressing just a little bit, but the flavors of this vinaigrette pair together to create something much more flavorful than your traditional, store-bought french dressing.

A vinaigrette is made by blending oil with acid and seasonings to form a sauce. I like to make my own dressings using fresh, quality ingredients. It is easy to do and only takes a few minutes to make up a delicious topping for salads, vegetables, or even use as a marinade. I also love the fact that I can control what goes into my vinaigrette! I can name all the ingredients and leave out the funny stuff that just messes up the flavor! 

Another great thing about making your own vinaigrette is you can adjust the flavors to your liking. Taste as you go! The final product is completely up to you! Being in control is a beautiful thang!

This vinaigrette is a gorgeous color and really dresses a salad up beautifully. The flavor pairs especially well with my Mango Berry Fruit Salad

Mango Raspberry Vinaigrette

Mango Raspberry Vinaigrette

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 mango, peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Place 1/2 cup fresh raspberries and 1 diced mango in a bowl. Sprinkle with 1/2 tablespoon sugar and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor place 1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar, 1/2 tablespoon honey, and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. Pulse to combine.
  3. With the food processor running, slowly add in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until the mixture is combined.
  4. Add the fruit to the food processor and pulse to combine well. Using a food processor will take care of the raspberry seeds, but you can strain it through a fine mesh strainer if you like. If you use a blender, I recommend straining to remove the seeds. Cover and chill until ready to use. Enjoy!
Yield: about 1 cup
Prep Time: 10 mins.
Total time: 10 mins.
