Patriotic Summer Salad

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.

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

Dressing

  • 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.
