THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #30 (Summer Salads) and Raspberry Summer Salad

The Theme is: Summer Salads
(Please share a delicious salad with us this week!)

I am away on a 5-day girls only scrapbooking event in our local mountains and it's beautiful! We are relaxing, laughing and having the best of times. I knew Summer Salads was scheduled for today and so I purchased all the stuff to make this delicious salad up here in Big Bear. All of the ladies were eating their salads on the patio and it was a perfect day, I made my salad and enjoyed a nice lunch with friends. (Plus this salad is perfect for my diet.... gotta loose 15 lbs for my upcoming vacation.... got 5 weeks until we leave)

The scrapbook ladies at Apples Bed & Breakfast
This salad was shared to me by a few scrapbook friends many many years ago. I have loved it ever since, I often forget about it but every time I make it I love it just as I did the very first time.
Below is a linky party for you to link up your favorite Summer Salad, I can't wait for some new ideas!

Raspberry Summer Salad
recipe from a scrapbook friend

plate full of spinach lettuce
1/4 cup of raspberries (fresh is best, frozen does not work)
2 tbsp pine nuts
1 whole avocado, diced
sprinkle of mozzarella cheese
drizzle of Raspberry Vinaigrette & drizzle of Ranch Dressing (strange but delicious)

The recipe is really easy and very simple, just put all the ingredients together and then devour. YUM!
