Berry Summer Salad

My husband took me to Zupas on my birthday.  I always get their Wisconsin Cauliflower Soup and their Nuts About Berries Salad.  I love fruit in salads!  This version isn't exactly like Nuts About Berries, but I love it just as much, or maybe even more.

I love how easily this salad comes together.  I always have the toppings on hand, so it's easy to just throw them in.  

As I mentioned here (with the no-bake berry cheesecake), we love eating berries at our house.  Fresh berries this time of year make meals so enjoyable!  For this salad you can use any combination of berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, or strawberries) or just one type of berry would work.  Really, whatever berry/berries you have in your fridge, throw in.  Same goes for the nuts.  I like to use almonds, but whatever you have can be used.

I like this Baby Spring Mix at Smith's.  It's reasonably priced, easy to use, and is just the right size for our family's meals during the week.  I can usually make salad 3 nights a week with this one package.

My other favorite is this Simply Dressed Strawberry Poppyseed Dressing by Marzetti.  These dressings were on sale one week, so I bought a few and now I'm hooked.  They are a bit small, and pricey, but I've found them on sale a lot.  I also found a coupon here you can print off.  
Marzetti also has a Balsamic Dressing that is my other favorite!  I'll have a post soon on my favorite salad with that dressing.

There's nothing like a good fresh salad in the summertime (at least I think so).  
What's your favorite way to spin a salad? 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.
