There's a restaurant on the water in downtown Toronto where Adam and I have stopped more than once for a pint and some lunch after a ball game or just while wandering the city. It has a great food, a great patio and cold beer.
One day a couple of summers ago we were trying to be healthy and Adam decided he'd have a salad for lunch (I have no recollection of what I ate). Adam polished off the entire salad commenting the whole time on how delicious it was. It wasn't until he was finished that I pointed out he had just finished what might have been his first ever vegetarian meal without even realizing it.
As soon as we got home I looked up the ingredients and jotted them down. This salad is now a staple in our menu and we even served a variation at our wedding (that's how much he loves it!)
Now I'm going to share it with you!
Adam's Summer Berry Salad
6 Cups Mixed Baby greens
1 Cup Fresh Strawberries, quartered
1 Cup Fresh Blueberries
(If you can't get Strawberries or Blueberries use whatever berries look fresh and yummy!)
1 Bosc Pear, Diced
50g Soft Goat Cheese, Crumbled
1/4 Cup Candied Walnuts (I make my own and add a hint of cayenne)
Dressing - I'm not great at making dressing so we usually use Renees Raspberry Vinaigrette, it's fresh, it's tasty, and it doesn't add a ton of calories.
If you're really missing the meat, this salad is great with grilled chicken. I also love to add avocado to mine (But i'll put avocado on anything).
I hope you love this salad as much as we do!
