Spinach and Raspberry Salad

This must be without a doubt my favourite salad.  It's tart, sweet, crunchy - all the things you want. I make a white vinagrette for this salad.

Ingredients - White Vinaigrette:

2 Tbsp Cider Vinegar
3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 bruised clove garlic

Whisk together until emulsified. Remove the garlic clove.

Ingredients - Salad:

1 Packet spinach leaves.
1 Punnet raspberries
A handful chopped walnuts
1 cup blue cheese - broken into pieces
4 preserved green figs cut into small pieces


Toss together in a large salad bowl.
Drizzle with vinaigrette

Tip:  If I'm going to serve the salad immediately, I toss the spinach leaves in the vinaigrette and then all all the other ingredients.  Sometimes I just coat the spinach with the vinaigrette and keep all the other ingredients separate and assemble the salad on individual plates. In that way, if I have left over ingredients, they don't go to waste.


  1. another great salad recipe but I need to replace the raspberries as its really expensive at Malaysia and sometimes its difficult to find too.

  2. Nava, you can use strawberries too and I've even made this salad with blueberries.

  6. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could
    space it out better?
