Spinach Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette
Bottle raspberry vinaigrette is usually too sweet. We knew that to make this ’80s classic relevant again, we’d have to start from scratch.
Why This Recipe Works
When we pureed fresh raspberries for our Spinach Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette, tasters complained of seeds in their salad dressing. Straining proved to be too much work for an easy recipe, so we opted for seedless raspberry jam. Instead of using traditional goat cheese—which tasters said became unpleasantly squishy as it soaked up the dressing—we turned to the salty tang and creamy texture of shredded Gouda.
