Refreshingly nutritious salad enjoyed for breakfast snack or dessert. For vegans this can be made with simple syrup in place of the honey.

Top Review by Baby Kato

Rita, I loved the flavors in this tasty salad. I used fresh strawberries & blueberries and frozen raspberries and blackberries. I didn't have enough raspberries so subed with blueberries. I also used a French Pear Vinegar as I was out of cider vinegar. The dressing was very delicious, so I opted to add a little more of it when serving the salad and omitted the greek yogurt, as per my picky dh. The honey is a wonderful addition. Thanks for sharing another winner. Made for Herbs of the Month - June - Tarragon :)
