Ok guys, it’s theme party time – everything red, white, and blue! I’m a total sucker for these kinds of parties and love creating new recipes for them. Usually I would do some kind of cupcake, but those are sooo last year. (Although, I’ll never rule them out completely. Cupcakes hold a special place in my heart. Cupcakes forever!) Anyway, rather than putting out a boring ol’ salad – lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes – show some USA spirit with this fruity patriotic salad.
- 1 bag of mixed greens (or spinach, whatever your choice of greens are)
- 2 cups of chopped strawberries
- 2 cups of blueberries
- 3/4 cup pine nuts
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3/4 cup grapefruit juice
- 1 tbsp herb mixture or just a salt and pepper mix
Toss the salad and mix the dressing separately. Pour the dressing on right before serving.
Happy Eating (and Happy 4th of July!), XO.
