Strawberry and Blackberry Mint Salad

If you are looking for a quick, sweet and fresh salad for either a side dish or dessert this will work.  I made this the other night to go with a stuffed grilled skirt steak I was making.  The steak was so “heavy” and the weather so warm that I felt this would be a good choice.  I also needed to use the berries up before we went away for a few days.


  • 1 quart of strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced in to quarters
  • 1/2 pint blackberries left whole
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

How to:

  • Pat berries dry
  • In a bowl put lemon and lime juice
  • Add berries and mint and gently toss to coated
  • Sprinkle with sugar if desired
  • Cover and chill for 20 mins
