Summer Berry Fruit Salad


Summer Berry Fruit Salad is a simple recipe with a glorious dressing. The berries are left to macerate in the dressing and the result is a sweet and tangy perfectly scoopable summer sensation! This fruit salad is great to take to potlucks and picnics. Just be sure to bring the recipe because everyone will be asking for it.

You may have noticed I have a bit of a thing for summer berries. I wait all year for the season to get here and when it finally does. I go crazy with berries. They go with every breakfast, snack and dessert.  I am thinking about incorporating them into dinner too.

Truth be told my I do have favorites. Strawberries, blueberries and then raspberries. Blackberries are kind of the weird cousin that only gets to tag along once in a while. I like them, but the can have a more 'earthy' flavor than I prefer. The earthiness can really overwhelm the other flavors so I leave them out more times than not.

Last year I made my first fruit salsa. Pineapple Salsa and it was insanely delicious. I couldn't get enough. Then I created Strawberry Habanero Everything Spread. Oh my gosh. I can not tell you how amazing the sweet dips were when dipped with salty tortilla chips.

So this year I decided to try something new. A completely sweet fruit salsa served on tortilla chips.

It all starts with a triple berry mixture that is dressed in a dazzling raspberry sauce. It is sweet and tangy and addictively tasty. We couldn't stop eating it. We dipped it with chips. Then once it sat in the refrigerator for about an hour it because this perfect everything salsa. Perfect for dipping or on top of oatmeal or ice cream.  {{swoon}} I know you are going to love it too.


With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Summer Berry Fruit Salad
SERVES 12  |  ACTIVE TIME 25 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 1 Hours 25 Min

1 pound fresh strawberries, diced
5 ounces fresh raspberries
9 ounces fresh blueberries
1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

In a small bowl or measuring cup combine jam, sugar and lemon juice. Whisk to combine. Set aside.

In a large bowl combine fruit. Pour raspberry dressing over top. Stir until all the fruit is well coated.

Serve immediately or place in the refrigerator for 1 hour-overnight to allow the flavors to meld.

The longer the fruit sits the more juice it will make. If you want a dry and crisp salsa I recommend serving it immediately. If you prefer your fruit soft and macerated allow it to sit in the refrigerator. I enjoyed it both ways.

I served with sweet potato tortilla chips and also corn tortilla chips. The saltier corn chip was a nice contrast to the sweet salsa.
