Delicious Spring Salad

Looking to make something for dinner tonight that makes you think spring? Try this Raspberry Feta Cheese Salad with Lemon Honey Vinaigrette.


  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 12 ounces mixed spring greens
  • 16 ounces raspberries
  • 1 thin sliced granny smith apple
  • 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, plus additional to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds


  1. Adjust the rack to the center position and preheat the oven to 350°. Spread the slivered almonds on a sheet pan and bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until fragrant and light brown, watching carefully to prevent burning. Set aside and allow to cool.
  2. To prepare the vinaigrette combine the olive oil, lemon juice, honey, salt, pepper and poppy seeds. Whisk the ingredients together in a medium bowl or blend them in a mini food processor until well mixed.
  3. To assemble the salad, layer the mixed greens, raspberries, apple slices, toasted slivered almonds, and crumbled feta cheese in a large bowl. Just prior to serving add desired amount of the Lemon Honey Vinaigrette and toss until the salad ingredients are evenly coated.
