That is why I call it refreshing mixed berry salad with raspberry vinaigrette.
Try serving it as a side to this Roasted Tomato and Fennel Soup for a light summer meal.
- Rice wine vinegar
- Fresh raspberries
- Lemon juice
- Olive oil
- Romaine lettuce
- Fresh mint
- Fresh strawberries
- Fresh blackberries
- Sliced almonds- toasted
Place dressing ingredients in blender or food processor and whir it up until smooth.
Combine the rest of the ingredients and serve with a drizzle of the dressing.
- Swtich out the Romaine for any lettuce of your choosing.
- You could also use walnuts or pecans in place of the almonds.
- Chill the salad plates to make this extra special
- Use a meal planning app to add this recipe to your menu and the ingredients to your shopping list. I use Plan to Eat. It make my life so much easier. I can even repeat a whole week or month meals so I don’t even have to think about it.
