Chilled Mixed Berry Salad

Chilled Mixed Berry Salad

Chilled Mixed Berry Salad is a great choice on the hot days of summer. Here at our place in Puerto Vallarta, the temperatures are running between 88 and 92 degrees each afternoon. With this heat, nobody wants to stand around a hot stove so there are a lot of chilled salads served at the Chefs Kitchen Table. Another benefit of this salad is that we can pack it into our cooler and take it to the beach in the late afternoon and enjoy it while watching a beautiful sunset while the waves slide onto the beach.

Your recipe for a Chilled Mixed Berry Salad will include a Raspberry Vinaigrette which is a perfect combination.  So grab some fresh berries and let’s make a light lunch.

A plant-based whole foods lifestyle is so beneficial for our health that we really must make every effort to adapt to it as soon as possible and get away from the processed foods whenever we can.

  • I love this time of year when there are so many fresh fruits and vegetables available at our local farmers’ markets. Just make sure your husband does not add the dressing until just before he sits down to enjoy his lunch. We thought about moving to Texas when I retired because we have a daughter living in Clute, but the beaches of Puerto Vallarta called louder. Have a wonderful day.

  • My husband would love this and so I think I will make it as a surprise for him this week. As he can take it to lunch as he never takes anything which isn’t healthy. As for the Beach I wish I was there this morning as it is so hot here. Have a Blessed day.

  • We love this recipe and add some fresh blueberries when we find them at our local farmers market.
