You can drizzle this salad with your own dressing made with olive oil, crushed raspberries, and balsamic vinaigrette. If you don't like raspberries, crushed strawberries or blueberries work well too. The fruity taste of the dressing compliments this so well. This is my favorite salad to make when it is just me at home, and I don't have to share with anyone.
