I’m head over heels in LOVE with this healthy Cranberry Blueberry Spring Mix Salad with Blueberry Balsamic Dressing! This scrumptious Summer salad is fun, fruity, and full of flavor!
While I’m no stranger to dumping blueberries into my salads, I’ve never once considered blending them into a dressing. Well not until a berry dressing finally knocked my socks off, that is. There’s a sweet raspberry dressing at a local lunch spot here that has totally changed my mind about fruity dressings and holy cow I’ve been missing out!
Since I suspect their berry dressing is laced with enough sugar to classify it as liquid candy, I figured I had two choices: embrace dessert salads and give up donuts in favor of sugar-laden greens *OR* make my own healthy berry dressing at home.
Obviously I chose the latter.
No way am I giving up donuts!
Raspberries don’t last long in this house, as my pint-sized sidekick, can clear out a carton in a sitting, so I decided to tackle the bucket of farm-fresh blueberries we picked the week prior.
I blended a cup of berries into my go-to balsamic dressing and had to talk myself down from polishing off the entire jar right then and there. I really am kicking myself for not jumping on the fruity dressing bandwagon when it first became a thing. It’s totally legit!
Bring on the berries!
