Delicious green salad with summer berries and honey glazed pecans

 I absolutely adore spring and summer, because the farmer’s markets and stores are simply bursting with juicy, gorgeous, ripe berries and that makes me so happy.

This scrumptious salad is definitely one of my new favorites.  The rich leafy greens, paired with 4 different berries, topped off by sweet, crispy honey glazed pecans… oh my gosh y’all.  SO good!

I ate this 3 days in a row and made it again for the neighbors!

Summer Berry Salad with Honey Glazed Pecans

 

This salad is so delicious and so simple to throw together.  I was inspired to make this salad when I saw a Summer Berry salad on a visual menu at a restaurant as the kids and I were out shopping last week.  It sounded so good, but they wanted $9 for their salad, and y’all, that’s just not happening.

Go to your Farmers Market or garden or wherever you get your berries and grab some plump, delicious blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, and then grab more because you’re going to snack on them {you know you will} and you’re going to want to make this salad several times.

Due to the juiciness of the berries and the yummy sweet, crispness of the honey glazed pecans, you don’t really need a dressing for this salad, but if you really want one – I highly recommend this Savory Dijon Wine Vinaigrette , it would complement the sweetness perfectly!

There’s really not a hard and fast recipe for this salad, as it’s just a mixture of your favorite leafy greens {I use a spinach, kale, romaine, red leaf mix}.  I sliced up 6 strawberries, and added in 1/2 C of raspberries, 1/2 c blackberries,  1/2 c blueberries, and 1 C of honey glazed pecans.  Voila!  Easy and delicious Berrylicious Summer Salad!
