I eat salad pretty much every single, solitary day.  There aren’t too many days that I don’t crave one, and sometimes I even eat two.

I change up my salad routine often to keep things exciting.  While I like traditional veggie salads that are packed with crunchy vegetables, salads like this raspberry salad recipe keep me from getting into a salad rut.

Raspberry Salad

This salad is exciting because it’s crunchy, chewy, salty, and sweet.  I’m a huge fan of sweet and savory recipes and this salad hits all of the marks.

There’s no denying the addicting blend of mixed baby lettuce with juicy fresh raspberries, tart chewy dried cranberries, salty feta and crunchy, toasted walnuts. chewy dried cranberries, salty feta cheese, and sweet, fresh raspberries.

Toss this baby lettuce salad in a tangy, mildly sweet red wine vinaigrette and it’s salad heaven.

When I make salad for my family, I generally customize it by the bowl depending on likes and dislikes.  It’s a little bit of a pain but the important thing is getting my kids to eat their veggies.

This baby lettuce salad appeals to my kids too, so I can just make a nice big bowl, which is a total salad win.

It’s also great for entertaining — just be sure and double it!

I made a very simple dressing for this salad because I think the ingredients are very flavorful and stand on their own!  If you’re pressed for time, store bought raspberry or balsamic vinaigrette would also work with this salad.

If you’re in a salad rut, it’s time to get out of it, and fast!  This raspberry salad is fresh, delicious and just the thing to liven up your salad game. ๐Ÿ™‚
