A Refreshing Salad

I recieved this recipe in the email, originating from Eating Well, I think. Anyway, it looks delish! I have been on the lookout for something different than just the usual veggie salad. Can't wait to try it.

Raspberry, Avocado, and Mango Salad


1 1/2 cups organic raspberries, divided
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 clove fresh garlic, coarsely chopped
1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black ground pepper
8 cups organic mixed salad greens
1 ripe organic mango, diced
1 small ripe avocado, diced
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/4 cup hazelnuts, toasted and chopped, or sliced almonds (optional)
Puree 1/2 cup raspberries, oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper in a blender until combined.

Combine greens, mango, avocado and onion in a large bowl. Pour the dressing on top and gently toss to coat.

Divide the salad among 5 salad plates. Top each with the remaining raspberries and sprinkle with nuts, if using.
