Raspberry Poppy Seed Dressing

I love this creamy, fresh-tasting dressing! It’s so quick to assemble and adds a summery gourmet touch when drizzled over a salad. —Kendra Stoller, Kouts, Indiana.

    Made this dressing for our Christmas dinner, with my home grown raspberries that I'd frozen from summer. The color was so beautiful and festive. The flavor was excellent!

    Made this for Easter, and everyone loved it. Had it over romaine lettuce with strawberries, blueberries, red onion, and sugar coated pecans!

    I did like this dressing. Not sure about how I felt about it being pink though when I was mixing it up. It tasted really good, I used it on a strawberry spinach salad.

    Tried it two ways. Loved it and if you use splenda, it's just as good.People that haven't tried it shouldn't be reviewing it because everybody doesn't worry about all fat, just the bad fat! My family has to worry more about carbs. This is great!!

    Have to agree with luhorn, way too many calories and fat grams.

    Adust calories by using creme fraiche or thick (drained) yogurt in place of half the oil. Then, Luhorn, you might like the taste. I know what you mean about the calories!

    Seriously???? 161 calories for 2 TBS of salad dressing? I won't even be attempting to make this.

    Raspberry poppy seed dressing is simple and easy to make. My family simply loves it and we use it on whatever salad we want. It's a keeper and going in my recipe box.
