Nothing says fresh quite like fruit atop salad greens.
Depending on where you live, fresh berries are entering their peak seasons. This recipe, created by Yours Truly, is so easy and extra special because the fruit combinations can be switched out according to the seasons and personal preferences. And, it’s the perfect time to grab the goodies at the market or head out to pick your own.
Begin by lining a bowl with about 4 cups of your favorite greens. I like the crunch of Romaine lettuce mixed with the richness of fresh spinach.
Then, just start piling on the flavor……
……chopped Golden Delicious apples, strawberries, and blackberries….
…..then croutons…. Love the crunch…and blast of salt.
…..add a handful of sunflower seeds for heartiness and texture…..
…..and toss with a one-to-one combination of light raspberry vinaigrette and light poppy seed dressings. Then top with a sprinkle of shredded Parmesan cheese.
……It’s so yummy.
