There’s nothing like a fresh salad full of your favourite ingredients to hit the spot. This raspberry and pear spinach salad packs a punch with the addition of red onions and honey goat’s cheese. Zesty and delicious, it makes for one satisfying main meal.
The Foodie Mama’s ingredient theme for the month of September is raspberries and boy do we have a lineup of mouth watering recipes to share with you today! From savoury to sweet, the ruby red berry shines in all of them.
But before you scroll down and start pinning away (because you’ll want to), I want to talk about just how easy this nutrient rich salad is to make. All you need is a bed of fresh baby spinach, sliced pears and red onions, a pint of raspberries and a sprinkle of sweet honey goat’s cheese. Mixed together, this medley of ingredients creates a flavourful delight. To make it even more magnificent, you can drizzle a homemade raspberry vinaigrette on top of it, made of crushed raspberries, balsamic vinegar and virgin olive oil.
Is your mouth watering yet? I hope so! The full recipe is below for your enjoyment.
