Peruvian Power Foods: Camu Camu Superfood Raspberry Vinaigrette

Camu Camu is a tropical fruit native to the Amazonian jungle in Peru and other parts of South America.  This jungle berry packs 60 times the vitamin C content of an orange, making it an immune-boosting powerhouse!

While fresh camu fruit is difficult to find in the United States, after harvest, the fruit is juiced and freeze-dried into a nutrient-packed powder, newly available in the US.  The tart and fruity flavor pairs well with other fruits, both acidic and sweet, and makes a delicious addition to sauces and dressings where you might otherwise use lemon juice or vinegar.
