You can use your favorite dressing on this salad.  It’s super versatile and will be a great base for any dressing.

For a fruity salad, add the fresh raspberries at the end.  You can leave them out if you prefer.

You can add slivered/sliced almonds, sunflower seeds or pecans to this salad for more crunch.

If you like, you can add 1/2 cup of Craisins instead of the raspberries for an alternate version of this great salad.

Depending upon your preferred dressing you can substitute a mesclun mix of lettuce.  Just wait until just before serving to dress the salad.
