I know, I know, it sounds weird to enjoy garlic with raspberries.  But seriously, this salad is delicious!  It’s a spin off of the classic cucumber garlic mint salad.  Mine is refreshing and savory at the same time.  Give the dressing and cucumbers 24 hours in the fridge to blend together, then add the raspberries just at serving time.  The flavors work really well together!
