    How about a honey mustard type dressing? That has always been my favorite dressing when I ate a SAD diet.

    I’ve been working on a French dressing, but its not spot on yet. Until I create a raspberry dressing you could use the strawberry poppy seed dressing recipe. Swap out the strawberries for raspberries, leave out the poppy seeds and use a balsamic vinegar.

    Do you have a good recipe for french dressing or raspberry vinagrette? Thanks!
