Raspberry Chicken Salad

Raspberry Chicken Salad

My favorite salad dressing is a Raspberry Vinaigrette so when I came across this recipe find, I couldn’t help but share ~ Raspberry Chicken Salad ~ you get your fruit, veggies, seasonings and a little sweetness that will go a long way.  I look forward to your thoughts on this one…thank you for showing up!

1/3 Cup Reduced-Sodium Kikkoman Soy Sauce

6 Cups Mixed Salad Greens

1/3 Cup Wish-Bone Light Raspberry Vinaigrette

½ Cup Fresh Raspberries

Crumbled Feta or Goat Cheese for Garnish

Almond Slices, optional

SECOND Combine the Preserves, Orange Juice Concentrate, Soy Sauce, Rice Vinegar, Chili Powder and Garlic Powder in a bowl; mix well

THIRD Pour the mixture over into the bag with the Chicken and seal tightly; toss to coat the Chicken

FIFTH Grill the Chicken over hot coals for 5 – 6 minutes on each side, or until cooked through

I also enjoy Almond Slices on my salad…but as I always say, make it your own

Raspberry Chicken Salad is from my personal cookbook collection, Simply Colorado Too, which I have been admiring quite a lot this week; page 63 (2000).
