Raspberry Walnut Salad

Raspberry Walnut Salad is a vibrant salad loaded with flavor! A homemade raspberry vinaigrette is tossed together with fresh greens, juicy raspberries, crunchy walnuts and creamy feta cheese. Perfect salad to serve along with any meal, serve for a crowd, or to have a delicious salad for lunch. The possibilities are endless with this salad that tastes like Spring!

How to make the raspberry vinaigrette:

Making your own salad dressing at home is SO worth it! Not only can you control the ingredients that go into it, but it ends up having so much more flavor. You want to know what sets this raspberry vinaigrette apart? Raspberry preserves! After having a similar salad at a friend’s house, I couldn’t stop thinking abou the idea of adding preserves to a dressing – brilliant! 

Simply whisk together the raspberry preserves, finely chopped shallot, lemon juice, salt and extra virgin olive oil unti smooth. Or, you can add all the ingredients to a mason jar with a fitted lid and shake it until a dressing forms. Easy peasy!

Assembling the salad:

Putting this salad together couldn’t get any easier – which is my kind of salad! It’s hassle free and comes together in a snap. 

After you make the raspberry vinaigrette, toss it together with the fresh greens, then top with the raspberries, walnuts and feta cheese. I prefer to have my toppings on top, but you could definitely toss them all together as well! 

Tips for making this salad in advance:

Since this salad assembly is a breeze, it can easily be made in advance! Here are my tips for making it advance or using it as a meal prep option:

  1. Make the dressing ahead of time and store in the refrigerator.
  2. Store the greens with the toppings on top so all you have to do is add the dressing.
  3. Wait to dress the salad until right before serving so that the greens don’t get soggy.

Serving this Raspberry Walnut Salad is the perfect option to put a little bright cheer on the table! It works great for holidays, family gatherings, date nights or just to have for lunch – I love how versatile it is!
