Spring is fragrant and lovely in this little lakeside town.

Warm sunny days inspire herbs and fresh veggies and lots of salad!

My daughters loved this meal and the simple balsamic vinaigrette dressing on the salad.

Fresh and crunchy with warm and creamy; Perfection!

Mixed Greens and Raspberry Salad

022Christmas PD salad

The winter blues are setting in and the best way that I know to combat this is with healthy fresh foods.

Today’s salad is one of my favorites as it has raspberries in it; sweet and juicy, full of antioxidants and vitamins.

I made an easy olive oil balsamic vinaigrette.

I put 2 parts olive oil to 1 part balsamic vinegar in a glass jar and shake it vigorously.

The result is a thick fully emulsified dressing that I can serve and store with ease.
