Autumn Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette

Tossed this together tonight. I found a similar recipe online and then added and subtracted and tasted and came up with this yummy recipe. If you have no issue with mixing cheese and meat this would be awesome with grilled chicken or steak added to it. I gave amounts for everything but you may want more or less of this or that...just go with it.

You'll need:
1 bag mixed greens (I used a spring mix...but that doesn't sound autumn-ish)
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
2 avocados, peeled and diced
1/2 cup halved grapes

2/3 cup olive oil or walnut oil
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons raspberry jam or jelly
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
a few grinds of your pepper mill

Combine dressing ingredients and whisk, blend, shake...whatever works for you. I used a hand blender.
Set aside or refrigerate until needed.

Toss together the salad ingredients and toss with dressing.
Serve at once and enjoy!

The start of a yummy salad

All dressed up and ready to go.

Eat and enjoy!
My family devoured it.
