Prep: 5 minutes

Serves:Makes about 1 cup

Jill says some people don't like the combination of fruit and vegetables but I find the flavor of the sweet, tangy and bitter light and delicious. If you want a bit more flavor contrast, add a few chopped salty olives or capers.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 - 1 cup raspberries or strawberries
  • 2 tbsp raspberry or other fruit vinegar
  • 1 tbsp regular or golden balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water, broth, or oil substitute for salad dressing
  • 2 tsp agave or other sweetener
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend well.

This dressing will keep in the refrigerator for several days. Serve this over a salad of baby lettuces mixed with arugula and topped with avocado, onions, vegetables, sunflower seeds and summer fruit, for a very satisfying summer meal.
