This Three Berry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing is bursting with flavor from not one, not two, but three different berries. It may become one of your summer favorites.
Salad, Salad and more Salad, I’ve been eating lots of it lately. When the weather starts to warm up I crave salad. People underestimate salads, they think salad equals plain and boring. I get it, because most associate salads with being on a diet and we’re so accustomed to just making salads with lettuce and a bunch of veggies. How about loading salad greens with a bunch of fruit every now and then.
The salad I’m sharing today is not your typical salad, it’s loaded with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. And the dressing, oh the dressing is a key part of this salad’s deliciousness. A few weeks ago I had a salad from the local deli and the dressing was an oh-so-delicious poppy seed, this is my version of that dressing. The creaminess of the dressing combined with the sweet fruit and earthy greens is like having a flavor party in the mouth.
Tonya a friend who blogs at Taste of Yummy, please check her out, suggested serving the Avocado Chocolate I shared a few weeks ago on salad, and that’s exactly what I did. Oh my gosh, adding the chocolate takes this salad to a whole new level.
It’s totally optional but I highly recommend giving the Avocado Chocolate a try on this Three Berry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing.
