Refreshing Chicken Leaf Salad With Raspberry Dressing

By: Linda Garn

Ingredients:
3 Tbsp canola oil, 3 Tbsp raspberry wine vinegar, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1/4 tsp salt, 2 1/2 tsp granulated sugar, 1 lb chicken breast, boneless and skinless, 1 pinch salt, 1 pinch black pepper, 1 large head romaine lettuce, 2 medium green onions, sliced, 1/2 pint raspberries

Prepare Dressing:
1 In a small bowl combine oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and sugar. Stir till sugar is dissolved.
Place in fridge while preparing the salad.

Prepare Salad:
1 Take the head of lettuce and separate the leaves. Place the leaves in cold water in the sink or a large bowl to soak for a couple of minutes. Then rinse the leaves and shake off the excess
water. Tear the leaves into pieces and place in a large bowl. Wash and slice the green onions
and place in bowl with lettuce. Gently rinse the raspberries and place on paper towels to dry
and set aside.
2 Rinse the chicken breast and pat dry with paper towels. Season chicken with a pinch of salt and
pepper. Place on a small broiler rack and broil until the chicken is cooked. Cut the chicken into
strips.
3 Take the dressing out of the fridge and stir. Pour over lettuce and green onions in bowl and toss until leaves are well coated with dressing. Add cooked chicken strips and toss into salad. Place raspberries on top of salad and gently toss so as not to crush raspberries. Serve.

Cooking Tips:
If you are unable to find raspberry wine vinegar you may substitute red wine vinegar. It will not
be exactly the same but will still be good.
Raspberries are delicate so the less you handle them the better. Add them at the very end and
toss gently so they retain their shape. If you are unable to get fresh raspberries you may use
partially thawed frozen ones.
