Fresh Berry Salad with Basil

I made this at my sister’s bachelorette party, and it’s a very easy and crowd-pleasing way to amp berries from plain to sophisticated by adding one simple thing: chopped fresh basil. You can use any berries you want, even other fruits like peaches or cherries, and add fresh basil. It adds a freshness and contrast to the sweetness, and adds a second dimension of flavor. Β You can add lemon juice and sugar is you’d like, but this dish is magic even without it.

For the salad:

  • 4 cups mixed (i used strawberries, bluberries and raspberries)
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil

Directions:

  • Wash berries! (produce is one of the top offenders for food borne illness! so this is a must!)
  • Chop berries that require chopping (like strawberries)
  • Give basil a fresh chop
  • Combine in bowl.

See? Easy, delicious, and loved by all. Make yourself seem fancy by simply adding basil to your berries.

Enjoy!
