Mixed Leaf Salad with Sugar-Free Raspberry VinaigrettePin recipeFollow us 119.6k

This healthy low-carb salad is fresh, pretty and goes together in just a few minutes. It’s a spectacular dish for a keto dinner party, bbq or pot luck supper with the generous leaves, jewel like pomegranate arils and the most delicious and pretty raspberry dressing that I’ve ever tasted.

This sugar-free dressing makes enough for some leftovers and I’m seriously wondering if you could pour it over some keto ice cream?

I digress. If you want easy, delicious and impressive then this is your salad. Enjoy!

  3. Place all of the vinaigrette ingredients (raspberries, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper) into a bullet blender or other high-powered blender and blitz until smooth. (You could strain it if you wanted to, but I didn’t have any problems with seeds from the raspberries.)

Is there a certain balsamic vinegar you use? Don’t get me wrong, I love sweet😍, but there seems to be a lot of sugar in balsamic vinegar. I’m trying to figure out if I can regularly use a balsamic vinegar dressing and if there’s something I’m not aware of (like that sugar doesn’t count😮)

Hi Michele, you should use the thin (non syrupy) balsamic vinegar. The aged syrupy types are delicious but they are indeed too high in carbs. You could also use white balsamic vinegar. I hope this helps!
