Lavender & Summer Berry Salad

Here’s a recipe for a  refreshing salad that my family really enjoyed this past weekend-

Lavender Infused Berry Salad

  • 2 tbsp A L Olivier Infused Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Pure Raw Honey ( I use Y.S. Eco Bee)
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar ( I use MiaBella)
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries- quartered
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh blackberries
  • garnish with fresh mint leaves-optional

Add all berries to a large bowl. Add the oil, honey, and vinegar to a small bowl. Whisk together until completely combined. Pour the dressing over the berries and toss to coat.  Refrigerate. This salad is best eaten the first day. It can be refrigerated another day or two depending on the ripeness of your berries.

I hope all my readers/followers are enjoying the last weeks of summer like my family is. Even though the season went fast goals my family and I talked about last spring were accomplished. Yes, some maybe not on their deadline, or very close to it, but others in the time we expected. Going into the fall we are ready for whatever it hands us. I know the need for me to volunteer will come a bit more often once school is back in session. Also during the holidays-peak time, when the need is the greatest. I’ve got my plan written down on how I will handle the extra responsibility of it.  I cannot say it enough if you love people and love helping people- volunteer. The reward is definitely in the act of giving of yourself and it doesn’t cost you a dime.

My container garden on the deck has dwindled down to cucumbers, two producing tomato plants, and mini pumpkins.

Until the next time we meet -stay well.
