Summer Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

So it Jana's turn to post today and her internet is down so I am posting for her. This recipe won't be as good as hers but at least there is a post for today. I went to a lunch bunch today and have had this salad recipe all summer. I haven't made it because most of my family wouldn't like it so today was the perfect opportunity. It was delicious and the dressing and the raspberries were my favorite part. I know that it is fall and this is a summer salad but I live in California and so it still feels like summer except that the kids are in school. Maybe if you make the sald it will feel like summer to you also. I got this recipe from a Taste of Home magazine. It is one of my favorite magazines.

1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp pepper
2 pkg. (5 1/2 oz. each) torn mixed salad greens
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
2 cups fresh raspberries
2 cups diced cucumbers
1 medium red onion, sliced
1 cup sliced almonds

In a small bowl, whisk the first eight ingredients. Refrigerate until serving.

In a salad bowl, combine the salad greens, onion, mushrooms, raspberries, cucumbers and almonds. Drizzle with dressing; toss to coat. Serve immediately.
