"Summer means picnics and pool parties and hanging out on the deck! Even though summer doesn’t officially begin until the 20th it’s been getting hot here in Minnesota, and nothing tastes better in the heat than a nice cold salad. I love a good chef salad or even a fruit salad but I’m always looking for something different to try. That’s when I found this awesome recipe for Spinach Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette in the book The Complete Salad Cookbook: A Fresh Guide to 200+ Vibrant Dishes Using Greens, Vegetables, Grains, Proteins, and More. When I listed off the ingredients to my husband I’m pretty sure he thought I was losing my mind, pistachios, radishes and raspberries? I know it sounds a little odd but with the Raspberry Vinaigrette it just all works so great together, you really have to try it your self. This Spinach Salad is so easy to make and you can make the vinaigrette ahead of time and then put it all together right before you eat. The instructions do say to mix it all together before you serve it but I left the Gouda cheese out and let people put that on themselves since not everyone in my family is a big fan of cheese (that just means more for me). I love a recipe that tastes this amazing and is even actually good for you. So, next time you’re in the mood for something fresh and delicious, give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!"
