Healthy Cranberry Raspberry Salad Dressing | Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen

Healthy Cranberry Raspberry Salad Dressing

October 5, 2012Teresa

Healthy Cranberry Raspberry Salad Dressing is delightful. This is the second lovely salad dressing I made using Greek yogurt and honey. This time I used a raspberry vinegar and a cranberry juice with blackberries, blueberries, grapes and apples. I wanted to get a cranberry raspberry juice that was 100% juice but couldn’t find any that don’t add sugar or splenda. This turned out really well.

Because of the tartness of the berries I added a little extra honey compared to the other two dressings. This dressing is healthy, low calorie, has no sugar, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial sweeteners, no additives, no MSG, no preservatives, no gluten, and no oil! It’s a very faint pink in color – really more like cream with just a tinge of pinkish color to it.

When I initially posted this recipe in October 2012, it was still the early days of my blog and my picture taking abilities were zilch. Since then I’ve upgraded from an iPhone 3 to a Canon and I’ve learned a thing or two about presentation.

As a result, I’ve been going back through all my first year blog recipes and remaking them so I can get better pictures of each post. I recently remade this recipe (July 2015) for a family dinner and also changed the recipe up considerably. This time when making the dressing I added raspberries to increase the flavor, color and texture. I found this version absolutely delightful. I hope you do to.

    What a great, healthy way to dress a salad. I need to make more dressings.

      It’s so very easy and tasty. I think it would make a great fruit dip, too. You can always add more Greek yogurt if you want it thicker.
