Mango and Berry Green Salad with Mango Dressing

Hope you had a fun and Safe weekend. We had a wonderful weekend. We got away to southern Utah and enjoyed a fun family reunion with 65 of us. We enjoyed helping my Dad celebrate his 80Th birthday. I am so very thankful for the parents I have. They have blessed my life over and over again. Enjoying family time together is something I cherish. It is fun to see my own immediate family growing too. I loved the fireworks last night. It was a perfect night for it. I love America! This is a wonderful time of year!this time of year.

This was a salad that my daughter made for Father's Day! I just hadn't posted it yet. I got the idea for it, when we ate out for lunch. I thought it was something that could be made at home and it was. It was a nice colorful salad, and it tasted good as well. It is a nice salad for Summer.


2 Heads of Romain lettuce washed and torn in pieces.
1 1/2 C blueberries
1 1/2 C Mangos cut in bite size pieces
1 C Marion berries or strawberries or both
candied nuts optional * would be wonderful!
1 bunch of green onion chopped * Optional


1 Mango chopped in pieces
1/2 C water
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 T rice vinegar
1 T olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp basil
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 T honey


1. Prepare lettuce. mangos and berries. Nuts and green onion if desired. Put lettuce in a bowl and toss in the mangos first and onion and nuts if using them. Add the berries last and toss them only once. The blueberries will run onto the mango if you toss to much. Serve the dressing separately.

2. Pour all the ingredients into the blender and pulse a couple minutes. Adjust taste to your preference. You can refrigerate before serving. d Serve the dressing separately. So people can add on the amount desired. It could taste great with out dressing too.
