Heading to Grandmas: A Raspberry Vinaigrette Three Pepper Salad to Take With You

Whether you are celebrating Easter with extended family at Grandma's house, enjoying an Easter sunrise from your vacation home on the beach or even preparing your Easter meal in an rv as you travel the roads; Easter is this Sunday and if you still need a nice light, crunchy, healthy and brightly colored side sald, this Raspberry Vinaigrette Three Pepper Salad is a winner.

I like Easter to be my personal guide on serving light fruity vinaigrette's instead of a heavier dressing. The raspberry is what makes this recipe 'pop' and calls out "It's Spring!" to all who have it.

Raspberry Vinaigrette Three Pepper Salad

1 head romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
2 c baby spinach leaves
1/2 orange bell pepper, julienned
1/2 red bell pepper, julienned
1/2 yellow bell pepper, julienned
3-4 T Parmesan cheese, fresh grated
2/3 cup raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing
pecans are optional

Toss together the lettuce, spinach, peppers, and cheese. Drizzle dressing over salad and toss to coat. Top with pecans if you desire.Print Friendly and PDF
