Salad with Raspberries, Blueberries, Shallots, Toasted Almonds and Goat Cheese with a Raspberry Vinaigrette
This is a great summer salad for using fresh raspberries and blueberries in season, and the goat cheese gives it a nice creaminess. The dressing is made with raspberry vinegar, but you can also use red wine vinegar, champagne vinegar, sherry vinegar or anything you have on hand. I have a hand held mandolin that slices the shallots very thin so they don’t overpower the delicate salad that I like to use. The toasted almonds add a nice crunch, but you can use toasted pine nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, candied nuts, anything you have on hand, but I recommend toasting any nut you use to bring out the flavors.
