Raspberry Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

A quick, easy, slightly fruity salad dressing, this came from the kitchen of an Italian woman who knows her stuff. It was obvious, the day I got to peek inside her kitchen. Oh be still my heart!...pots bubbling, dishes and bowls holding just a bit of this and a bit of that, interesting dark bottles with stoppers and corks. "Calabrese,"...a golden twist, together crusty and delicate..."Mrs. C sent that over, and she is going to teach me how to make meatballs." And I wondered what a miracle Mrs. C's meatballs must be since the ones I feasted on a few minutes later were amazing. Well, she entrusted me to make the dressing for a simple fresh green salad spiced up with sugared walnuts, hers, to accompany the Sugo and Meatballs and Ribs and Ravioli. It got better, but I'll stop. Another time. These were the instructions.
  • 6 Tbsps. good olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Raspberry Vinaigrette
  • 1 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
Shake it up and sprinkle over the salad greens and mix to coat just before serving.

Oh, you are a nasty one! Here I was expecting a nice healthy post, and now I'm dreaming of pasta!

It all sounds delicious.
