May means a matter of moments until Memorial Day Weekend.

OK, it means a matter of weeks, but it is never too early to start testing ideas for this year’s cookout.

Serves 6


6 cups spinach

1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries

1 1/2 cups blackberries

1 1/2 cups blueberries

3 ounces feta cheese

1 bottle herb garden vinaigrette


Place spinach in a large serving bowl

Add blackberries and blueberries

Remove and discard strawberry stems

Slice strawberries lengthwise and then in half, adding to the bowl  

Add cheese

Gently toss to combine

Place a bit on your plate, and top with vinaigrette (you can add the dressing to the entire salad, but if you expect to have leftovers, we recommend that you keep the dressing on the side to prevent the greens from becoming soggy)
