Springtime Raspberry Salad

We've had a few days of weather in the high 80s, and I'm willing it to be summer already.  We've been lucky to have plenty of mild days, but I know a lot of my foodie friends across the country are under a pile of snow.  While Spring may not fully be everywhere, it has definitely made it's way to my kitchen.  This Springtime Raspberry Salad with its raspberry vinaigrette is like a bowlful of Springtime right on your table.  With the addition of juicy oranges and tangy raspberries, it's colorful and elegant and super fresh and tasty!
Whether the weather is like spring or not,
your table can look like it!
