RASPBERRY MOZZARELLA SALAD WITH RASPBERRY BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE

IMG_1903

As weird as it may sound, I am not a big fan of raspberries, I am crazy, right? OK, to put it right, I am not a fan of raspberries in desserts as I find them way too sour. But the good news is I adore raspberries in salads & savory dishes!

This Raspberry Mozzarella Salad with Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette (very long name, ha?)  has a very unique taste from a different combination of flavors!

The creaminess of the fresh mozzarella, the sourness of the berries & the saltiness of the almonds sound just so right!

All drizzled with a sweet raspberry balsamic vinaigrette that’s so easy to make … In a food processor …. yaaaay “no whisking”!

It’s both crunchy & soft with popping berries in every bite … Enough said, ha?

I find it to be the perfect salad for hosting guests as it comes together in no time; it doesn’t require any cutting or chopping & can be prepared ahead of time.

Let’s celebrate … It’s the month of Christmas!
