It seems like on these hot summer days, all I want to eat for lunch or dinner is something nice and cool.  I’ve been consuming a lot of salads to keep my temperature down, and my oven off this summer.

I love salads with fresh berries.  I love to have something sweet to go a long with my greens, so any berries I have always get thrown in to the mix.

This salad is a mix of mixed greens, spinach, strawberries, blueberries, feta cheese, and glazed walnuts.  The show stopper is my favorite sweet salad dressing, poppy seed dressing.  It’s my go to summer salad dressing.
