The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions; to ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required, and to understand the steps and timings involved.

Adding fruit to savory salads add a lovely sweetness, and I’m a big fan of using fruit in salad recipes.

This raspberry chicken salad is really quick and simple to make as it makes use of a store-bought rotisserie chicken or cooked chicken. You could even use leftover chicken from a roast.

Simply slice the chicken, add it to a pile of salad greens, scatter some raspberries on top and crumble over some goat cheese (Feta would also work well).

The hardest part (and I mean that really loosely!) is making up the lemon-vinegar dressing that has a little touch of cayenne pepper for some heat.

You’ll probably have this salad made and on the table in about 10 minutes! All you have to do is just enjoy!

Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe

While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients (and equipment) needed for this recipe have been listed below and linked to Amazon or other stores if available online.

It doesn’t include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, and pepper, as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen already. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. You can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).
