Apple Raspberry Vinaigrette Salad

A simple recipe including apples, feta cheese, walnuts, romaine hearts and a delicious raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Did I ever mention that I was a vegetarian for 9 years? Okay I was which means that I know how to cook delicious and healthy vegetarian food. I ate salads nearly everyday and still do even though I stopped eating just vegetarian food in my 20?s. Here is a recipe that can be served vegetarian or not! Keep in mind that this is a salad so don’t be afraid to mix it up or add as little or a lot of an ingredient as desired.
