Featuring items from MHF CSA
Adapted from a recipe by Giada De Laurentiis

1/2 cup unsweetened frozen raspberries, thawed
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
*1 tablespoon honey
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
*1 large head of butter or Bibb lettuce, torn into 1-inch pieces, to yield 4 cups
*4 cups arugula
Optional 3/4 cup shelled pumpkin seeds, toasted (see Cook's Note)

Directions
For the vinaigrette: Place the raspberries, olive oil, lemon juice, and honey in a blender. Blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. In a large salad bowl, mix together the lettuce, arugula, and pumpkin seeds. Just before serving, add the vinaigrette and toss until all the ingredients are coated. Cook's Note: To toast the pumpkin seeds, arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven until lightly golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Cool completely before using.
