Blueberry salad

March 30, 2012 in Meatless Mondays, Monthly Mingle, Salad, Vegetarian

I love food, (as if you did not know that already!), but I absolutely adore berries and cherries. 

As a child we rarely had the privilege of eating fresh berries and cherries. We ate strawberries and of course mulberries, which was plentiful, but never blueberries, cranberries, gooseberries or any other berries. I spoke to a friend a couple of days ago who said she has never tasted fresh cherries?!! How sad! 

Berries are irresistible for most people. A couple of weeks ago we were at the Stellenbosch Slowfood market and the Mulberry tree was bearing fruit and almost every person that walked past could not resist picking a few and eating them! 

I always dreamt of living on a farm and growing loads of berries and having a cherry tree lane! 

This month’s Monthly Mingle, hosted by Christina who runs the blog Mele Cotte is to prepare something using berries or cherries.

My sister made this salad as part of Christmas lunch and I decided that it would be my contribution to this month’s monthly mingle!
