Spring Greens with Berries

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.


7 servings

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


  • 2 packages (5 ounces each) spring mix salad greens
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
  • 3/4 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 3/4 cup fresh raspberries

  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large bowl, combine the greens, oranges, berries and almonds. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the vinaigrette ingredients; shake well. Drizzle over salad and toss to coat.
