Summer Salad with Walnuts and Raspberries

Pin It

 In case you couldn’t tell, we love fruit in our green salads! Mango, grapes, blueberries, strawberries, apples, oranges, grapefruit, peaches…I thought I’d done it all! And then I was flipping through the pages of my Always Superb cookbook and realized that raspberries were one fruit I had yet to feature in a salad.

Aside from the raspberries, the ingredients were things I almost always have on hand, making this salad very easy to throw together to accompany our burgers for dinner one night. I added feta to the original recipe and its saltiness was a welcomed addition. Next time I might slightly reduce the honey in the dressing, it was almost a little too sweet for me. Modify to your tastes accordingly.
Do you have a favorite salad that features fruit?!
