Summer Berry Salad
Spread the love
Summer berry salad is one of our favorite sweet summer salads to make. It’s full of ripe berries, candied pecans, goat cheese and tossed with a delicious homemade strawberry dressing.
Café Zupas has the most amazing salads, soups, and sandwiches. Now, if you’ve never heard of Café Zupas you’re definitely missing out. It’s a chain restaurant in Utah that makes your food fresh, cafeteria style. They make a delicious salad that inspired this Summer Berry Salad recipe.
I was recently introduced to the fast casual restaurant when I ate there before a BYU game. The line wasn’t long and we were treated with a sliced baguette and chocolate covered strawberry. How fun is that?!
Anyway, I ordered their Nuts About Berries Salad and fell in love! Fresh, sweet and tart berries on a bed of mixed greens topped with a sweet vinaigrette. I don’t know about you, but it sounds so refreshing!
Never mind that I had other obligations to tend to; recreating this salad jumped up to a top priority.
Recreating This Recipe:
Recreating this recipe was perfect timing and totally meant to be because I was in charge of the food at my friend’s bridal shower the following weekend!
Needless to say the salad was a hit and has been ever since. It’s made its presence at multiple bridal showers, baby showers, catering events, and family gatherings.
What I love about this salad is that it’s one salad that my husband will actually eat! Must be the berries and sweet vinaigrette.
If you’re wanting more protein, top the salad with grilled chicken or steak.
It’s the perfect dish for Spring and Summer when berries are in-season and ripe and I can’t wait for you to fall in love with my latest obsession!
