Mixed Greens with Fresh Raspberries, Feta Cheese and Pecans in a Raspberry Vinaigrette

Good morning, I hope you all had a lovely Passover/Easter celebration. I don't know about you, but I could really go for one of these salads today after what I ate yesterday! 


Not all recipes have to be complicated and this is one of them! I was grilling some pork chops for dinner recently (recipe to follow) and just wanted a simple salad to go with it. The combination of sweet raspberries with the sharpness of the feta cheese and maple flavor of the pecans made this salad the perfect accompaniment to our meal. 


Mixed Greens with Fresh Raspberries, Feta Cheese & Pecans in a Raspberry Vinaigrette
5oz pkg. Organic Mixed Greens or Baby Romaine, rinsed
1/4 c. Feta Cheese, crumbled
1/4 c. Pecans, chopped
1 pt. Fresh Raspberries
Prepared Raspberry Vinaigrette


Add the lettuce, cheese and pecans to a bowl and mix well, coating all of the leaves. Then gently add the raspberries and mix so as not to crush them. Serves 4. 


Raspberry Vinaigrette
2 tbsp. Raspberry Vinegar
3 tbsp. Canola Oil
1 tsp. Sugar
1/4 tsp. Kosher Salt
1/4 tsp. Fresh Ground Black Pepper


Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl. 


Enjoy!
