Frugivore Recipe: Pink Berry Salad Dressing

Salad dressing are decisive in raw nutrition, as most of our diet is based on sweet fruit bowls and savory green bowls. Therefore having healthy and tasty salad dressing are an important factor in making this diet actually work!

Further, fruits and greens are a super healthy combination, to which we are naturally drawn as frugivores. This is why it is not only tasty but healthy to add a fruit-based salad dressing to your salad bowl. The vitamin C of fruits helps us absorb iron from a plant-based diet better – which is important for a successful plant-based and raw diet.

If we think bout it, salad dressings are an imitation of fruity taste: the acidity and sweetish flavor that we add to greens make greens and veggies taste more fruity and actually appealing. This is the reason I am getting creative in mixing healthy fruit-based salad dressings, like this pink berry-containing one:


  • 1 cup mixed frozen or fresh berries (such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)
  • 1/2 cup raw orange juice
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 3-4 tablespoons maple syrup (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh or 1 teaspoon dried herbs
  • A few pinches of sea salt
  • 3 teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil (optional)


    1. Prepare the Berries: If you’re using frozen berries, thaw them first. For fresh berries, rinse and pat them dry. Blend them in a blender until smooth.
    2. Mix all ingredients: Combine all ingredients and mix them with a whisk. Taste and adjust the sweetness with more maple syrup if needed.
    3. Chill: Refrigerate the dressing for at least 30 minutes before serving. This allows the flavors to meld together.
    4. Serve: Drizzle over your favorite salads. This dressing pairs well with leafy greens, nuts, and cheese like feta or goat cheese.
    5. Storage: Store any leftover dressing in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Shake well before using if it separates.

Enjoy your berry salad dressing! It’s a great way to add a burst of fresh, fruity flavor to your salads.
