California Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing

As soon as it starts getting warmer outside, all I want to eat are fresh sides! Forget the potatoes and gravy – I want something that’s not going to weight me down in the heat! This California Salad is a copycat of one I had at The Melting Pot Restaurant in Salt Lake City. It’s a perfect combination of leafy, crunchy, and tangy. It goes great as a side, an appetizer, or even as your main dish (I’ve been eating it for lunch for the past few weeks!).
