Summer Berry Salad

Fresh greens tossed in a raspberry vinaigrette with mixed berries, honey goat cheese and candied walnuts.

Directions:

  1. For the Salted Candied Walnuts: In a medium saucepan, over low heat, combine walnuts, sugar and water. Stir continuously for 5 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and sprinkle evenly with salt.
  2. For the Raspberry Vinaigrette: In a small bowl, combine raspberries and sugar. Roll raspberries around to thoroughly coat. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Using a fork, mash raspberries until well blended. Using a spatula, press mashed raspberries through a small strainer into another medium bowl, discard seeds.
  4. Whisk in red wine vinegar, salt, and lemon juice. While continuing to whisk, slowly drizzle in canola oil.
  5. Combine blueberries, strawberries, goat cheese, and spring mix in a large bowl. Toss with desired amount of vinaigrette.
  6. Garnish with candied walnuts.
