Raspberry, Asparagus Chicken Salad

Post  Nonna.PapaVino on 5/25/2011, 12:10 pm

Pattipan, you inspired me, so here's another fruit/greens salad. I served it at a dinner party last weekend withough the chicken as a side dish. One of the guests wanted another serving instead of dessert.

Raspberry Asparagus Chicken Salad
original recipe from Stanton Junior Women's Club Stanton, Nebraska (pub 1991)

Dressing:

1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries (fresh is best)
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
2/3 cup oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Salad:
3 tablespoons oil
1 lb. boneless chicken breast, cut into strips
6 cups fresh spinach or a mix of young greens from garden
18 fresh asparagus spears cut into 2 inch pieces
2 peaches (or mangos), sliced
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
pecan pieces (optional)

In food processor with metal blade, combine all dressing ingredients except oil. Blend until smooth. Continue to blend while slowly adding oil. Cover and refrigerate.

If using chicken for a main dish salad: Heat 2 tbsp. oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken. Cook until no longer pink. Remove chicken from pan. Add 1 tbsp. oil to pan; cook asparagus until tender (2 to 3 minutes). Refrigerate chicken and asparagus until cooled.

Arrange spinach on 6 plates; top with chicken, asparagus and peaches (or mangos). Top with dressing. Garnish with pecan pieces, if desired.

I will definitely give this a try, Nonna.P! I have some beautiful wild red raspberries in my freezer.

Why am I hungry all of a sudden and I just ate lunch? tongue
