Ingredients

For the salad

  • 4 c. spring lettuce mix
  • 1 c. fresh blueberries
  • 1 c. fresh strawberries quartered
  • 1 c. fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 c. feta cheese

For the candied almonds

  • 1/2 c. sliced almonds
  • 1/2-1 tbsp. sugar white or brown

For the vinaigrette

  • 2 c. fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 c. red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp. honey

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, pile your greens and top with all of your berries and sprinkle with feta. Set aside while you prepare your candied almonds.

  2. In a small saucepan add your almonds and sugar and stir constantly heating to medium-high.

  3. Sugar will begin to melt after about 5-7 minutes. Do not stop stirring your nuts. Once the sugar begins to melt it will harden quickly. Stir briskly to evenly coat the almonds. When all of the sugar is dissolved, remove from heat. Transfer almonds to a paper towel to cool.

  4. Sprinkle cooled almonds over top of salad greens, berries and cheese.

  5. Prepare your dressing by adding all ingredients to your blender. Blend on high until a smooth consistency is achieved.

  6. Drizzle desired amount of dressing over salad. Enjoy.
