  • 1 cup raspberries fresh + sweet
  • ¼ cup basil fresh; loosely packed
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar; see note 1
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup note 2; honey or brown sugar may be also be used in equal amounts
  • ¼ teaspoon dijon


  • Combine all ingredients in a blender or small bowl.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Taste and add additional sugar or vinegar if necessary.


1- Balsamic dressing tastes AWESOME in this dressing but won't give the same red color.
2- since raspberries can vary greatly in their sweetness, adjust the sweetener to taste.
Store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
