Most Chicken salads have eggs, mayonnaise, and mustard. However, today we will prepare something different from your usual brown-greens and more healthy and wholesome.
- 2 Tbsp. Olive oil
- 2 Tbsp. raspberry wine vinegar
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp granulated sugar
- 1.2 lb chicken breast, skinless and boneless
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 large head romaine lettuce
- 3 medium green onions, sliced
- 1/2 pint raspberries
Preparing the Dressing
- In a small bowl, mix vinegar, olive oil, salt, lemon juice, and sugar. Stir till sugar is dissolved.
- Keep this mix in the fridge while preparing the salad.
- Take the head of lettuce and distribute the leaves. Keep the leaves in cold water on a large bowl or in the sink to soak for five minutes. Later, rinse the leaves and remove excess water.
- Cut the leaves into pieces and keep them in a large bowl. Wash properly and cut the green onions and keep them in a bowl with lettuce. Smoothly rinse the raspberries and put them on paper towels to dry and keep it aside.
- Rinse the chicken breast and make it dry using paper towels—season chicken with a pinch of pepper and salt. Please keep it on a small broiler rack and broil until the chicken is browned. Cut the chicken into shreds. (my favorite step)
- Take the dressing out of the refrigerator and stir. Pour over lettuce and green onions in a bowl and toss until leaves are adequately coated with dressing. Add prepared and cooked chicken shreds and toss evenly into the salad.
- Place raspberries on top of the salad and smoothly toss so as not to smash raspberries.

If you cannot find raspberry wine vinegar anywhere, you may replace it with red wine vinegar. It will not be the same, but it will still be good.
Raspberries are sensitive, so make sure you are handling them with care. Mix them at the very end and toss very delicately, so they hold their shape. Try not to replace fresh raspberries with frozen ones- salad is all about freshness.
