Raspberry dressing from seedless jam

Salad Greens with Raspberry Dressing (made from jam!)

I originally posted this back in 2008 or 2009, but this morning it caught my attention because I have sugar free jam on hand and looking over the ingredients in this recipe, if I cut down on the lime juice a bit I can make this a nice light dressing that is sugar free and lower carb.  If you missed this one the first time around, here it is again.

The salad greens are important to the presentation, so if you can, don't chop up Ice Berg lettuce or even just romaine. Use a nice, pretty mixture.
