Ingredients (Dressing):
    •    ½ pint raspberries
    •    2 tablespoons Lily of the Desert Preservative-Free Aloe Vera Juice
    •    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    •    1 tablespoon minced shallot
    •    2 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar
    •    coarse salt and ground pepper

Wash all the greens and toss into a large salad bowl. In a mixing bowl, whisk together aloe juice, extra-virgin olive oil, minced shallot, vinegar, salt, and pepper. In a separate bowl, roughly mash raspberries with a fork. Pour dressing mixture over berries, stir together, and let sit in refrigerator for up to 2 hours to let the flavors blend. Before serving the salad, take dressing from the refrigerator, give it one last whisk, and serve over bitter greens!  Serves 4.
