Red, White and Blue Salad

Pick up any of these ingredients at your local market, such as or . 

  • Greens: Amount depends on number of guests (spinach or romaine or whatever other type of greens you desire).
  • Blueberries: 6 ounces more or less depending on your taste and how many people you are serving.
  • Strawberries: one 1-pound container sliced.
  • Raspberries: 6 ounces You can use these instead of the strawberries, vice versa or use both.
  • White cheese: Shredded or crumbled. Crumbled feta or goat cheese work well. You could also go with crumbled blue cheese or shredded parmesan if guests want a stronger cheese; you may want to serve cheese on the side in case guests may have dairy allergies.
  • Dressing: To taste. A lighter type like a raspberry vinaigrette or a balsamic vinaigrette complements the salad ingredients.

Place ingredients in a large bowl and toss. Sprinkle some of the fruit (and cheese if you wish) on top so guests can see the red, white and blue in the salad. Enjoy!
