Berry Summer Salad


Ok...so I know it's been a while. It has been a very busy and stressful summer. Micah and I are doing a lot right now and it's been hard to find time post. I will be able to be more specific about what we have been doing in a week, but for now let's talk salad. And not just any salad, the most wonderful and delicious summer salad I am confident you will ever have. My husbands aunt is known in the family for making the best salads, and I think this is my favorite salad that she makes. Eating this salad is like eating dessert! Maybe it's the 1/2 cup of sugar in the dressing, or the yummy candied pecans-but everything about it is delicious! Since summer is almost gone, I hope some of you get a chance to make this wonderful salad.

1 head red leaf lettuce
1 lb spinach
1/2 c. roasted candied pecans (make your own or buy them)
1 pint strawberries
blueberries
feta cheese

Dressing-blend together
1/3 c. raspberry vinegar
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. oil (i use olive oil)
2 tsp. dried onion
1/4 tsp salt
1 T. poppy seeds

Mix lettuce and spinach. Cut up strawberries and throw in with blueberries and some feta-as much or as little as you like. Top with the delicious dressing and enjoy!
