Happy Monday Friends! Today I am back with a quick, healthy salad for you all. I hate to see summer slipping away so fast, don’t you?
We love summer and especially like eating dinners outside on the deck with the family on the days when there is a gentle breeze. There are only a couple more weeks, and we will have to move in and cook hot soups to keep us warm. To celebrate summer until it’s gone, I made this excellent Blackberries and greens salad. It’s a fresh, light summer salad, and the best thing is that it didn’t take more than 5-10 minutes to make.
Fresh blackberries are out on the shelves, and we put a few boxes in our basket while grocery shopping this weekend. I love all summer fruits, but blackberries are on the top of my list for sure. They are not only delicious but so healthy, too. I used green salad mix as well as arugula to toss together this colorful salad.
- 1 cup blackberries
- 2 cups greens salad mix
- 1 cup arugula
- handful of cashews
- handful of pecans
- handful of dried cranberry
- 1/2 cup feta
- Blackberry or raspberry vinaigrette
- Toss together the mixed greens salad, arugula, cashews, pecans, dried cranberries and feta. Add fresh blackberries to the top and serve it with your favorite summer dressing.
Eating healthy and keeping healthy habits is great. Since my hub changed his lifestyle and diet, we as a family eat much healthier in general but I still think that we don’t eat enough greens.
Will you try this great blackberry salad? So yummy, fresh and light salad for a quick lunch or dinner on busy weekdays.
