chicken, pecan & apple salad with raspberry vinaigrette

Salads are kind of a staple in this house. The most popular ones always seem to involve fruit and nuts, so I figured I’d give this one a try.  It’s pretty straightforward, I add a little bit of crumbled blue cheese to the salad for bite.   Lettuces can vary…we love arugula, but I think it’s a bit too peppery for this, so I use a spring mix. Here’s the recipe for the raspberry vinaigrette!

1/4 c. olive oil
10 oz. jar of seedless raspberry jam
1 c. seasoned rice vinegar
