Ingredients:

  1. Romaine Lettuce
    Baby spinach leaves
    Fresh raspberries
    Fresh pear, diced
    Feta cheese (I used reduced fat)
    Red onion, thinly sliced
    Sunflower seeds

    Raspberry Vinaigrette:
    1/3 cup canola oil
    2 1/2 tbsp raspberry vinegar
    1/2 tsp sugar
    Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Directions:

    1. Combine all the ingredients together and mix thoroughly.
    2. Taste the dressing, if it's too tart add a couple tablespoons of apple juice or a bit more sugar, to taste. I kept our dressing tart because the berries and pear were so sweet.
    3. Combine the romaine, spinach, pear, feta cheese, red onion and sunflower seeds.
    4. Top with a bit of salad dressing to taste then toss.
    5. Once the salad is dressed, add the raspberries and serve.
    6. Enjoy.
