Summer Berry Salad


I made this beautiful salad for my cousin's wedding that I catered a few weeks ago and have made it several times since for various parties and BBQs we have been going to. It is SO easy and refreshing, not to mention beautiful with all of the different colors. It is such a sweet salad I could almost eat it for dessert!

Summer Berry Salad

6 C spinach leaves
1/2 lb sliced strawberries
1 pint blueberries
1 pint raspberries
2 C candied pecans (see recipe below)
Brianna's Blush Wine Vinaigrette to taste

I was eating these pecans by the handful they are so good! And my house smelled amazing while they were cooking too. You might want to make a second recipe just for snacking!

Candied Pecans

1 egg white, whipped until frothy
1/2 C sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
2 C pecan halves

Mix everything together and spread on a foil lined and buttered cookie sheet. Bake at 300 for 30 minutes. Serve completely cooled and store in an airtight container.
