Mango Berry Pistachio Salad

Mango berry salad

I love pretty much all salads: lettuce-less, fruit, vegetable, Mediterranean. Seriously can’t get enough of them. We eat salad several times a week, sometimes as a supplement to the main course and other times as the main dish itself.

For today’s feast, I created another fruit-filled salad (remember my mango-strawberry-avocado salad and watermelon-feta spinach salad?) Clearly fruit salads are a favorite of mine. This time I combined mangos, strawberries and blackberries for a unique blend of berry and tropical. Spreading the tropical theme to the dressing, I added a bit of coconut milk to one of my favorite homemade dressings. The flavors blended deliciously and the pistachios and blue cheese on top did a nice job of offsetting the sweetness of the fruit and dressing.   Remember that any of these salads make great picnic fare. They are all healthy and light, super easy to throw together, and they travel well for that trip to the park or a friend’s house.
