Salad in white bowl with fork

This light, simple and refreshing salad combines tender salad greens, fresh raspberries, tangy goat cheese and crunchy walnuts, topped off with a simple homemade raspberry vinaigrette.

Fruit on salads – yay or nay? I say yay! Technically, tomatoes are a fruit and you see them on salads all the time. Fruit offers a juicy sweetness that can really take a salad to the next level.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Salad Greens – Go with a tender green like spinach, baby kale or spring mix for this salad.
  • Raspberries – So delicious in this salad! You can also swap or add in other berries, fresh cherries, apples or pears.
  • Goat Cheese – Plain or honey goat cheese pairs so nicely. Not a goat cheese fan? Fresh mozzarella, shredded Parmesan or Feta work well too.
  • Walnuts – Great for crunch and heart-healthy fats. Other nuts like pistachios, sliced almonds or pecan are great too.
  • Vinaigrette – A simple mix of olive oil, red wine vinegar and raspberry jam.

Raspberries are high in fiber and Vitamin C, making them a great addition to any meal. Look for raspberries that are firm with a deep color, and store them unwashed in the fridge. Simply rinse with cool water and pay dry with a paper towel when ready to add to your salad.

Raspberries are also good for gut health and are considered a brain-boosting food thanks to all vitamin C you will find in these beautiful red berries.
