Even if you don't have time to make a full meal, you can still work the benefits of berries into your diet with these three fast recipes. Unlike conventional versions, ours are low in fat and sugar, and high in nutrients.
In a mini food processor combine 1/2 cup raspberries, 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar, 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, 1?2 teaspoon honey, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper. Pulse 5 to 8 seconds or until just blended. (If you don't have a mini food processor, use a handheld blender, or mash raspberries in a small bowl. Place the raspberries in a small jar and add all the other ingredients. Shake to combine.) Makes about 1/2 cup dressing. Store in a covered jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Serves 8.
