Raspberry and Pistachio Salad with Creamy Raspberry Vinaigrette

Let this summer go down in history as the summer of salad and burgers.

I’ve made some attempts to show you non-salad and non-burger recipes but ever since the earth reached its maximum axial-tilt one month ago (ohhh yeah, Wikipedia-ed that, son!)  leafy greens and hunks of meat have had my full attention. Resistible? I think not!

I can’t seem to even oil up a skillet for pancakes. Ludicrous. Loaf of bread? Get yo’self right out of town. Haven’t even touched the ice cream maker, the oven’s pretty much off limits, and the only thing that’s going in the blender these days is…wait for it, wait for it….salad dressing. If it’s not coming straight from the ice box or hot off the grill, I ain’t interested. Until I am…but you’ll know when that time comes.

Last summer, I posted Massaged Kale Salad with Creamy Blueberry Vinaigrette and ever since, I’ve been wanting to re-make the vinaigrette recipe using raspberries. Done. So great! So pink!

Drizzle it a-top mixed greens, fresh raspberries, pistachios, and blue cheese and you’re looking at…skyyyyy rockets in flight! What. is. wrong. with. me.

    Extreme heat=no desire to cook. It’s to dang hot, my hair twangs in the humidity, and there’s sweat dripping from my upper lip. It’s not pretty. I think I’ll pass on cooking and make this gorgeous salad.

      Smart thinking! And then a hefty bowl of funky monkey ice cream afterwards to balance out the day is the right way to go! 😉

    You are my fave for incorporating “Afternoon Delight” into this recipe post. That is awesome. 🙂

    Now about this salad — GENIUS. I love everything about it. Even my husband would love this salad and he is a total meat-and-potatoes dude!

    I am right there with you. We’re actually getting AC installed as I type so maybe I’ll be more willing to bake/cook. But if not, this salad will certainly hit the spot! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Looks just delicious!

      Not weird at all! Pistachios are a great love affair to have! This is the first time I used them on salad and I loved it! 🙂

    How much wine do you drink before you write your posts? Because whatever the answer is, I might have to start matching it. Haha. Also, how pretty is this salad??? Love it.
