Judy's Raspberry Vinaigrette

All the bottled Raspberry Vinaigrettes I checked contained added sweeteners, which I don't find necessary in a salad dressing. So I came up with my own recipe. This makes nearly 2 cups, so it can dress several salads:
  • 1/2 c white vinegar
  • 1 raspberry herbal tea bag
  • 1/2 c 100% fruit juice (raspberry, cherry, pomegranate or other red juice)
  • 3/4 c light oil
  • 1-1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp dried tarragon or Italian herbs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
Heat white vinegar to boiling and steep tea bag in it for 30 minutes, then remove and discard tea bag. Mix flavored vinegar with all other ingredients in a jar. Shake. Refrigerate until ready to use.
