Raspberries are an amazing fruit. Not only are they sweet and flavorful, but they also have several nutritional benefits including they’re low in calories, high in fiber and have a lot of Vitamin C. In addition, they also offer a rich source of flavonoids and antioxidants that help prevent cardiovascular disease and cancer. Try this vinaigrette to get some easy impact from this fruit’s benefits in a variety of ways! I love it over a strawberry spinach salad but I even used it over crostini with some greens and roasted grapes to get a balanced amount of flavors and nutrients.
