"This recipe is a real keeper. I followed the recipe exactly, and for a birthday party made a second raspberry vinaigrette that was a little sweeter, to give guests a choice. I can't tell you how many compliments I got! This will remain a definite keeper in my recipe box and meal rotations. Thanks so much for sharing this one."
