Summer Fresh Salad and Dressing

salad and dressingThis salad and dressing are a refreshing side to any summer meal. Use fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables. The dressing uses simple ingredients that enrich the flavor of the salad.  Add the dressing to salad just before serving. This recipe was given to me by a very dear friend. I have made this salad many times for different occasions and it has always recieved rave reviews. We’d love to know what you think of it!

Summer Fresh Salad with Dressing
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Salad
  • Red leaf lettuce
  • Mandarin orange pieces
  • Sliced strawberries or whole blueberries
  • Red onion
  • Cucumber
  • Red, orange or green pepper
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • Pinch of parsley
  1. Wash and prepare all salad ingredients.
  2. In a small container mix together salt, pepper, sugar, red wine vinegar, olive oil and parsley.
  3. Drizzle on salad just before serving. If you've made the dressing ahead of time you will need to mix the dressing again, as the oil and vinegar will separate.
You may not need all of the dressing that the recipe makes depending on the size of your salad.
