Excellent salad! I made this recipe exactly as written and used bleu cheese. I had never tried raspberry vinaigrette before so I didn't really know what to expect. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised! It was a great change from plain old green salad and Italian dressing. I served this with broiled lobster tails, twice baked potatoes and yeast rolls.
