Make a Berry Delicious Summer Salad

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I went to a summer picnic years ago and had a yummy salad that had fresh fruit, toasted nuts, bacon, and hard-boiled egg in it. It was SO good and refreshing and hearty! I looked at what all was in it. I want to share this with you ehow users in case you are looking for a similar green salad for your next summer picnic or outing. At the time, I saw the lady pour Henry’s Tastee Original Salad Dressing on it, but I don’t think you can find it anymore, so I just use a sweet fruity salad dressing…whatever looks good on the shelf for greens and fresh fruit. Try it and see for yourself about this Berry delicious Salad!

  1. Step 1

    Take 1 bag of fresh salad greens, I like the Spring Mix myself, and pour into a big salad bowl.

  2. Step 2

    In a saucepan, boil 3-4 large eggs like you would normally do till they are hard-boiled. Cool with cold water. Peel them and roughly chop them. Put them in the bowl with the greens.

  3. Step 3

    In a frying pan, fry 1/2 lb. of bacon. Drain grease off. When cool, crumble the bacon pieces and sprinkle them over the greens.

  4. Step 4

    On a Cookie Sheet, sprinkle a small bag of Almond slivers and a small bag of Pecan pieces and toast them under the broiler for a few minutes to lightly brown and toast them. Watch them the whole time. They burn easily. You could also try this in a non-stick pan on the stove top, if you wish, just keep stirring them around to get browned.

  5. Step 5

    Next, You will need to add the following cleaned FRESH FIRM fruits (not canned or too ripe where they’re soft), and however much you want to purchase/use in your salad:
    Strawberry slices
    Mushroom slices
    Seedless Red Grapes (cut in half)
    Seedless Green Grapes (cut in half)
    Kiwi pieces
    AND 2 Cans of DRAINED Mandarin Orange Slices

  6. Step 6

    When ready to serve, pour a CHILLED bottle of sweet fruity salad dressing of your choice….not the “normal” salad ones. Enjoy!
