One of my favorite parts of summer is the farmer's markets that pop up all over the city. You can find a little street or parking lot blocked off and full of beautiful fruit almost any day of the week throughout the summer months. One Sunday morning on our way home from yoga, my sister and I passed the West St. Farmer's Market and couldn't help but stop to browse. Browsing, of course, led to purchasing and we came home with some lovely peaches and berries. Almost immediately after walking in the door I was in the kitchen whipping up this super simple fruit salad.
Berry Salad with Orange Dressing
Make 4 servings
1 4 oz package of raspberries
1 4 oz package of white raspberries
1 4 oz package of strawberries
1 handful of fresh mint
1/2 teaspoon raw sugar
Rinse all berries and let dry a bit. Slice the strawberries into bite size pieces so that they are roughly the size of the raspberries. Place all berries in a bowl.
Take the orange and rub it between your hand and the counter a few times. This helps to loosen the juices before slicing it open. Squeeze half of the orange into a separate, smaller bowl. Roughly chop the mint. Add the mint and sugar to the bowl and whisk to emulsify. Add the orange dressing to the berries and toss to coat.
