Before we begin you should know that it really doesn’t matter which ingredient goes in when. Everything ends up in a clean pint Mason Jar anyway. Having said that I like placing fresh ripe raspberries into the jar first.
Oil and Onions
Next, add a little canola oil and chopped onions.
Now, throw in some parsley. Either fresh or dried parsley flakes work just fine.
Red Wine Vinegar
The next step is to add red wine vinegar. As far as I know, most Red Wine Vinegar is naturally gluten-free. However, always read the label just to be sure the ingredients are actually gluten-free.
A touch of honey adds a hint of sweetness. Many people prefer to use raw honey in recipes because of its health benefits. However, if you don’t have honey on hand you can also use agave or other natural sweeteners.
Next, it’s time to add your favorite Dijon mustard. (Again, check the label to make sure the product is gluten-free.)
Himalayan Sea Salt
And, for a final touch… a pinch of salt. Because of its mineral content, I like to use Himalayan sea salt.
Now for the fun part! Place a tight-fitting lid on the jar. Shake the jar until all of the ingredients are mixed together and the raspberries are broken apart.
Ready to Enjoy
As you can see, Shake-and-Go Raspberry Vinaigrette is extremely easy to make and ready in minutes.
This recipe yields approximately 3/4 cup to 1 cup of vinaigrette. If you need more simply double or triple the recipe.
I recommend using Shake-and-Go Raspberry Vinaigrette immediately but it does keep well (up to 3 days) if refrigerated. Allow the vinaigrette to reach room temperature and shake the jar to mix the ingredients again. Easy Peasy!
