Grilled Chicken Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette #SundayFunday

We have enjoyed a lot of Main Dish Salad Suppers this summer and a great way to change them up and keep your Weekly Menu exciting is by making new and delicious homemade dressings.

Grilled Chicken Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette

I took this Grilled Chicken Salad to new heights in just minutes by whisking together a dressing of fresh raspberries and fresh basil from my garden.

Mayuri of Mayuri's Jikoni is hosting this week's Sunday Funday blogging group and invited us to share recipes featuring Berries or Cherries.  Let's see what everyone brought to the party......

Raspberry Vinaigrette

I made a salad of greens and berries that I topped with Grilled Chicken Breast however, the star of the salad, and the recipe that I am sharing with you today, is the Raspberry Vinaigrette.

Grilled Chicken Salad

The salad was delicious and filling with several kinds of berries, hard-boiled eggs, cheese, mixed greens, and nuts as well as perfectly grilled chicken breast.  I knew a salad this lovely deserved a wonderful dressing.  A nice slice of crusty sourdough bread made it a perfect Main Dish Salad.

Raspberry Vinaigrette

This dressing is sure to take your next salad up a notch.  The dressing is also delicious as a dip or as a dressing for a fruit salad.
