Greens with Fruits and Nuts


Salads are a delight in the summer with the high temperature and humidity.  It nice to change them around by adding ingredients, you might not expect to find.  I have been putting strawberries into salads for years but not blueberries.  I admit, I hesitated, not knowing if they would be accepted.  They turned out to be a wonderful addition to the salad.

Greens with Fruits and Nuts

Ingredients:

8 ounces mixed greens of choice
1/2 cup strawberries
3/4 cup blueberries
2 tablespoons chopped pecans
1/2 cup slivered almonds

Dressing -
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Method:

In a bowl, place all makings of salad except dressing.

In a separate container, mix the salad dressing ingredients.  I usually put the salad dressing ingredients into my mini food processor and mix them together so the dressing is smooth.

Pour dressing over salad makings to coat the fruits, nuts and vegetables.

Serve - eat and enjoy.
