I love to make this salad this time of year, because the strawberries and blackberries are so fresh. You can also substitute the strawberries and blackberries for your favorite berries. Remember what you make with your heart n soul is always made with Lots of Love.


Mixed Greens and Berries Salad

6 cups of mixed greens; washed and dried
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup blackberries
1 small red onion; sliced thinly
1 cup pecans; chopped
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled


2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
4 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a large salad bowl combine salad ingredients, don't add pecans or the feta cheese.

In a small bowl whisk together all dressing ingredients.

Pour dressing into salad and toss gently sprinkle with pecans and feta cheese.

Serves; 4 to 6
