Sweetheart Salad Recipe
The lightly sweet raspberry flavor of the vinaigrette really dresses up this salad. It's a lovely ruby color perfect to serve someone special or just for yourself. —Marcy Cella, L'Anse, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:6 servings
- RASPBERRY VINAIGRETTE:
- 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
- 3 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
- 2 tablespoon water
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 medium tomato
- Sweet red peppers
- Assorted salad greens
- Cherry tomatoes, halved
- Pitted whole ripe olives
- 1. For dressing, combine vinegar and sugar in a pint glass jar. Microwave on high for 1 minute; stir. Add raspberries. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Refrigerate overnight. Just before serving, add water and oil; shake well.
- 2. Make a "tomato rose" by taking a sharp knife and slowly peeling a continuous strip around tomato, keeping the peel in one piece. Turn the tomato skin in on itself, forming a rose. With a small heart shaped metal cutter, cut out hearts from red peppers. Place salad greens on a serving platter; place tomato rose in the center and surround with red pepper hearts, cherry tomatoes and olives. Serve dressing with salad. Yield: 6 servings.
