As much as I love fall and winter produce (and I do!) I am always so happy when spring and summer berries come into season. One of my favorite ways to use these colorful, antioxidant rich little fruits is in salads, like this Mixed Berry Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette!

Greens, Berries and Healthy Fats!
This salad is so fresh, so light, and so nutrition packed! It’s also so delicious it almost feels like a dessert.
The Strawberry Vinaigrette:
Avocado oil, fresh strawberries, lemon juice and a little white balsamic combine to make a beautiful, bright pink dressing. So easy, healthy and naturally sweet. (I love this white balsamic and a close runner up is this one)
It’s always a hit!
I often make this salad for parties and family get togethers, there is never any leftover. Never.
