Sweetheart Salad

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
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • SALAD:
  • 1 medium tomato
  • Sweet red peppers
  • Assorted salad greens
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Pitted whole ripe olives


  • 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.
  • 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.
