Raspberries add bright color and several good-for-you nutrients like fiber, antioxidants, and vitamin C. Almonds are a good source of vitamin E and monounsaturated fats. Chives, members of the onion family, add phenols and flavonoids.

How to Make It

Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine vinegar and next 4 ingredients (through pepper) in a small bowl. Gradually add oil, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle vinegar mixture over lettuce mixture; toss gently to coat. Arrange 1 cup salad on each of 6 plates; top each serving with 1 tablespoon Sweet Spiced Almonds.

Made this dish according to the recipe and it turned out fabulous - a real crowd pleaser! Look forward to serving this again since the berries are perfect right now at the Farmer's Market.

This was delicious. The almonds didn't take long and were absolutely delicious. I doubled the recipe for a group of 13, and it was the perfect amount. I used one pint of fresh raspberries and about 3/4 cup of the almonds. The dressing was light, and the salad was just outstanding.

Great sweet and crunch

Made this for a light meal by itself with some fresh bread.  Great flavors loved the sweet of the berries and the crunch of the almonds.  Would be a great light meal or side salad to a larger meal.
