Using shallots and red wine vinegar gives this dressing a lovely light pink color. Onions in a dressing can be quite overpowering, but when paired with sweet berries in the salad, everything balances perfectly together.

  1. What a great tip about the onions! I am going to make a batch of this tonight for the beautiful salad I made up this morning.
