Recipe- Berry Fruit Salad With Agave Syrup

There’s nothing like fresh berries, especially on a summer day. This fruit salad is so yummy, you won’t be able to wait until summer. And you shouldn’t! I stole this recipe from one of my friends (thanks, Laura!) who made it vegan just for me at a family gathering. I ate a whole plate of it a week ago and couldn’t stop thinking about it. It’s so easy that you’ll wonder how is it possibly that good. I asked for the recipe and I just had to share. You can use either lemon or lime here. I personally love the taste o

f limes, but lemon is a popular choice too! You can’t go wrong with either. Don’t be intimidated by the mint. I’ve made watermelon salads with mint before and I know it’s easy to overdo! Be conservative with it and add more if necessary. I just may have found a new dish to bring to Fourth of July cookouts! Get a jump on summer and give this a try!

Serves: 8

Ingredients:

2 cups fresh strawberries, halved or quartered

1 cup fresh blueberries

1 cup fresh blackberries

1 cup fresh raspberries

2-3 tablespoons agave

Juice of half a lemon or lime

Optional teaspoon of lemon or lime zest

1 tablespoon fresh mint

Directions:

Combine all berries in a large bowl.

Mix other ingredients in a small bowl. Taste, adding more agave, lime juice, or mint, if needed. I liked to mix it first to adjust the flavors for personal preference, but you can pour directly over your berries, too.

Add lemon or lime juice and zest, agave, and mint mixture.

Stir gently, being careful not to smoosh the fruit.

You can allow to chill in the fridge for a few hours to let the flavors mingle, or enjoy right away.

Becoming vegan has been a life changing experience for me. Cutting back on animal products gives us the ability to change the world in so many ways. I started this blog to have all of my favorite recipes handy when someone asks, "What do you eat?" I am by no means a professional photographer, but I always enjoy visually seeing a recipe, so I do like to include pictures. I'm a busy, stay at home mommy, but try to find the time to add new recipes. I hope to offer delicious and easy plant-based recipes for those who are having trouble transitioning, already vegan, or simply want to incorporate a few vegan meals here and there. 🙂
