Sweet Blackberry Lemon Salad

blackberry-salad-recipe6

Berries, Berries everywhere.

I just can’t seem to get enough of ‘em these days.

My clients are requesting them in every meal and snack so I’ve been having fun in the kitchen whipping up everything from Very Berry Flax Waffles to Basil Berry Yogurt Popsicles.

So, when Whole Foods Market asked me to create a few fun berry recipes using their organic berries- I simply couldn’t resist.

I held a fun lil’ Whole Foods Market berry party last weekend and it was so sweet n’ tasty.

I created everything from quinoa salad to black rice salad and simple green salad all using Whole Foods Market’s organic berries.

Strawberries.

Blackberries.

Blueberries.

Raspberries.

Yep- I used up three pints of each- it was a whole lotta berries.

But O’ boy were they so sweet n’ fresh.

Just the way summer sweet was meant to be.

No added sugar.

No added sweeteners.

Just a few fresh organic berries.

So, go ahead- break out your berry stash and have a fun lil’ berry party with yourself today.

There’s more to come of these berry recipes- I created four in total and I’ll be posting them all within the next few weeks so be sure to stock up on your berries to be ready.

And yes, as always these recipes are totally #bikiniapproved.

Here’s to summer sweetness in your bowl.
