Mixed Green Salad with Raspberry Dressing

In Grand Blanc, Michigan, Brenda Lancaster tosses together this pretty medley of greens, mushrooms, red pepper, onion and oranges. She uses raspberry vinegar in the homemade dressing, but cider vinegar works nicely in a pinch.

    This was very good. I left out the mushrooms and used a whole small can of oranges to satisfy my taste.
