Fresh Berry Salad is one of the BEST fruit salads you will ever make!
This Berry Salad is smothered in sweet and tangy, incredibly creamy Honey Mascarpone that tastes indulgently gourmet but takes minutes to whip up! This Salad is perfect for special occasions (upcoming Mother’s Day), brunch, barbecues and all your pool side parties!
After celebrating spring break with beach bonfires and backyard barbecues, I want to fill up my lungs with springtime air and shout that the outdoor season is officially here! Which means it’s time for Strawberry Salad, Pineapple Salsa, Grilled Corn on the Cob, Brazilian Steak Kabobs and Berry Salad!
Just like I love curling up on my couch cozied up in a warm blanket and thick socks slurping soup in the winter, there is nowhere I love to be more in the Spring and Summer than the outdoors- whether its lounging on a blanket at the park with my hubs throwing the ball for Kiwi, or paddleboarding on the lagoon down the street, or walking on the beach with my stroller pushing friends or watching the nieces and nephews play sharks and minnows in the pool. But the one thing that makes me happiest – all of the aforementioned – but with food!
With every warm weather get together, there is usually some sort of pot luck involved and I love bringing something stress free, simple, fresh yet slightly indulgent that everyone gobbles up in a flash. You guessed it, I love to spoil my friends with fruit salads. Some of my favorites include Pina Colada Fruit Salad, Perfect Fruit Salad with Honey Citrus Dressing, Grape Salad with Vanilla Yogurt Dressing and of course this Berry Salad with Honey Mascarpone.
The Honey Mascarpone envelopes the fruit in a sweet and tangy velvety bath that is soooooo creamy! And although the Honey Mascarpone tastes restaurant gourmet, it is super easy to create simply by whipping mascarpone, vanilla Greek yogurt, honey, sugar, lemon juice and red wine vinegar together. If you aren’t familiar with mascarpone, its an Italian cheese that is rich and creamy with a subtle milky, sweet, slightly tangy flavor, that is somewhere in between butter and cream in texture so it whips up and envelops beautifully and tastes like pure heaven. Or what I imagine heaven to taste like.
As far as the berrys go in this fruit salad, you really can use whatever fruit your belly desires or whatever you have on hand, but I particularly love the pairing of sweetly tart berries with the luscious Honey Mascarpone. The Honey Mascarpone is soooo drool-worthy, you can even just serve it as a dip instead of mixing it with your berries – whatever suits your mood, – as long as you devour Honey Mascarpone somehow, some way somewhere – whether poolside, beach side, barbecue side or in your kitchen at midnight fridge side.
And in case you want to get a little fancy for Mother’s Day or baby/bridal showers, etc., this Berry Salad makes the perfect filling for lettuce wraps and looks so pretty! I like to top mine with a little sprinkling of Caramelized Pecans, and then I like to eat them.. all.
