Raspberry Jalapeno Vinaigrette

I have a new favorite summer salad and the highlight of the salad is the raspberry jalapeno vinaigrette. It is a sweet dressing with just a little kick of jalapeno.
To make the dressing, I first make the jalapeno sauce. In a blender, I blend 1/2 cup of water, 1 teaspoon of olive oil, 1 chopped and deseeded jalapeno.
To make the dressing  I combine 2 teaspoons of the jalapeno sauce to 1/2 cup store bought raspberry vinaigrette in a bowl. Dip a salad green in the dressing before pouring it over your salad. If it needs more jalapeno kick, add more of the jalapeno sauce.

The summer salad had spinach and salad greens, red peppers, feta cheese, craisins, carmalized walnuts or pecans.
We topped the salad with grilled chicken. It was so yummy and I plan on making it several times this summer. Enjoy!
