Raspberry Apple Salad


  When I was in college....there was this awesome restaurant called Nucci's Pizza that had the best veggie pesto pizza and amazing raspberry salad.


The thing that made the salad SO delicious was their homemade raspberry dressing.  It's creamy...unlike the thinner vinaigrette versions on the market.  I miss that salad so much that I attempted to make my own version.  It's quite simple...lettuce, sliced apples, glazed walnuts, feta cheese {theirs actually uses bleu cheese, but we always preferred the feta} and of course the raspberry dressing.  I bought a store-bought version which was ok {Annie's Naturals} but it still left me craving the real deal!  Guess we need to make a road trip back to San Luis Obispo!!


In the meantime, this is a great alternative...super light and refreshing for the summer!

Hope you enjoy...bon appetit!
