We are starting to wrap up summer here in Northern Michigan but there is still plenty of time to enjoy the summers bounty. Shopping at the farmers market is a great place to find most of the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe. Our markets have an abundance of berries and greens that are grown locally making it very easy to make this mixed berry salad with raspberry vinaigrette recipe.
As with most salad recipes the ingredients can be changed up to suit your taste buds. You could even add a bit of goat or parmesan cheese to this salad to give it another layer of flavor. I might even toss on a few croutons but there weren’t any available when this was put together 😉
Fresh seasonal berries and mint give this vibrant salad a refreshing burst of flavor. The addition of raspberries to the homemade vinaigrette lends some natural sweetness to this Whole30-compliant dish.
Prep time: 15 minutes
