Triple BC Raspberry Recipe: Chicken Salad with Raspberry Vinigarette Paired with Granville Island Raspberry Pale Ale

Inspired by raspberry season, Granville Island Brewing Co. gifted Modern Mix Vancouver a 6-pack of their False Creek Raspberry Ale and a raspberry-centric recipe to re-create with my own touch. Here’s what I’m calling the “Triple BC Raspberry” Salad Recipe – there’s raspberry in the salad, raspberry in the vinigarette, and, for your final dose of raspberry, a refreshing Raspberry Ale as the suggested pairing.


Triple Raspberry Chicken Salad

Serves: 4. Ingredient measurements are approximate – like with any salad, toss in more of the ingredients you have on hand, and less of those you don’t!

Salad Ingredients:

  • Cooked Chicken – 2 breasts or thighs (leftover chicken from last night’s dinner works well for salad)
  • Raspberries – 1/2 cup
  • Mixed Greens – 1 small box
  • Avocado – 1 diced
  • Toasted Hazelnuts – 1/2 cup

Vinaigrette Ingredients: 

  • Raspberries – 1/2 cup
  • Olive or Hazlenut Oil – 1/2 cup
  • White Wine Vinegar – 1/4 cup
  • Maille Dijon Mustard – 1 big squirt
  • Granville Island Brewing Raspberry Pale Ale – 1 tablespoon
  • Salt and Pepper

Drink Pairing:

  • Granville Island Brewing Co. False Creek Raspberry Ale


To make the vinigerette, crush raspberries and mix all ingredients together in a jar, put the lid on, and shake.  Toss together all salad ingredients and drizzle with the raspberry vinaigrette. Pair with Granville Island Brewing Co’s False Creek Raspberry Ale. Enjoy!
