Lovely Sriracha Raspberry Chicken Salad, made with fresh greens, raspberries, grilled chicken and a homemade spicy raspberry dressing that goes perfect with this easy dish ready in minutes. Raspberries are a beautiful fruit, they are elegant and tart.
I enjoy using raspberries which are now in season. You can eat them out of the package, with yogurt, in agua fresca, smoothies and desserts. Since raspberries are tart work in natural dressings like this one used on the Sriracha raspberry chicken salad.
This dressing is made with Sriracha powder for a spicy kick, fresh raspberries, yellow lemon juice, rice vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.
