A simple light and sweet salad with chicken, goat cheese, dried cherries and walnuts.
Available in some larger supermarkets and specialty shops, raspberry vinaigrette is also easy to make on your own with this recipe. In a pinch, you can use your favourite vinaigrette for this recipe.
After buying almost this exact salad for $4 each at my local Target store's cafe, I decided to buy ingredients to make my own at home. I made my first today, and came across this while searching for a dinner recipe using that goat cheese I bought! My version of this salad uses a delicious poppyseed dressing (which I highly recommend as I don't care much for raspberries.) You will love it! - 10 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This salad is great as a full meal too. I use dried cranberries, instead of cherries and use the Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix but make it with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. The combination of tart, sweet, salty feta is great. It's one of the few salads where there is rarely a drop left in the bowl after dinner! I am not big on Raspberry Vinaigrette but think the Balsamic is terrific. I don't even add chicken and find is still quite filling because of the walnuts and cheese adding the protein. - 26 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was okay. I did use fresh cherries because that's what I had. I feel like it needed something more. Maybe shallots chopped up into the pre-made dressing. - 10 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
