spring mix & two berry salad

good morning.


happy easter monday.  
or to me, the day after i've indulged too heavily in brunch, chocolate, dinner, chocolate, wine, cake, and yes more chocolate.

luckily i was in charge of bringing a salad to our big family gathering so at least i ended up getting in some greens yesterday.  mind you they were swallowed down with some sweet & spicy candied pecans and goat cheese, but they were greens nonetheless.


yesterday's salad was a colorful blend of spring mix greens w/ blackberries and blueberries hidden throughout.
and of course you need to round out any salad with a healthy dose of cheese and nuts.


delicious, heavenly and easy on the eyes.
