In Oregon, we are blessed with having access to yummy summertime berries. So why not take advantage of this and create a delicious summer berry salad with mint sugar? With a high concentration of antioxidants, this is a salad you can feel good about eating. Not to mention it is fat free and contains very low sodium. These simple ingredients are vibrant in color and contain a new twist of simple minted sugar. As the salad sits, the berries will soften and release their juices adding to its flavor.
- 1/8 cup fresh mint, chopped
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 (16-ounce) container organic strawberries, hulled and chopped
- 1 (6-ounce) container organic blackberries
- 1 (6-ounce) container organic blueberries
- 1 (6-ounce) container organic raspberries
Crush mint and sugar in a mortar and pestle until well-blended (or place sugar and mint in a blender or food processor and pulse until well-blended). Place mint-sugar in a large bowl and add strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. Gently toss until evenly combined.
