Spring Greens with Berries

 Spring Greens with Berries
My busy sister-in-law gave me this refreshing salad recipe years ago, and it quickly became a favorite with my family—just as it is with hers. It's crisp, colorful, goes together in a snap and complements a variety of entrees. Plus, the dressing can be refrigerated several days for make-ahead convenience. —Vikki Peck, Poland, Ohio
