Fresh Raspberries and Blackberries in Lime Ginger Dressing make a perfect summer dessert. Refreshing and delicious. The fresh berries with a simple sugar lime dressing don’t overload you with bad for you carbs at the end of your meal!

Oh Raspberries and Lime, how I love thee.  Now lets add blackberries and ginger to the picture.  Divine!  Who knew?  Obviously Kat of Study Food did!

For this month’s Taste & Create event I was partnered with Kat.  When I saw her recipe for Fruit Salad Dressing, I knew I had to try it.  Anything that has lime in it is going to attract my attention in a big way!  Kat used different fruits – I decided to pair mine with Raspberries and Blackberries.  They are on sale right now in the markets and honestly, I am a Raspberry/Lime kind of girl anyway!

Fresh Raspberries and Blackberries in Lime Ginger Dressing

I will admit I was a little bit leery of the fresh ginger in the dressing – but I did it anyway, and wow, it was not a mistake!  The fresh ginger just made the juice even more fresh if that is at all possible!

Back when Taste & Create started there were a lot more participants.  Unfortunately, there are very few anymore and I have to give Nicole a lot of credit (and Min!)  for foraging ahead and keeping it alive.  I am really glad I did because the bloggers that are involved in this event are doing it for their love of cooking – not just for the opportunity to be featured on someone else’s blog. I love this event because it does bring me to a blog I may not otherwise have found….and to recipes as simple as this one that I made from Kat’s blog.  If you haven’t joined in with Taste & Create, you really should give it a try.  You will have fun, you may be challenged, but you will not be disappointed…I promise!

    I don't think I'd ever get sick of eating just plain berries. The lime-ginger dressing sounds really refreshing and a good way to change up normal berries!

    Oh, yummy! I love a bowl of berries in the afternoon…and this takes them to a whole different level! Delicious idea~

    That's quite the fruit salad. The ginger must really compliment the berries.

    I fell in love with raspberries and lime when I made a lime curd tart and topped it with raspberries. Delicious! And this is so simple, but showcases the flavours so well!

    I've enjoyed participating for well over a year, though I'm surprised we've never been paired up.

    Here's to hoping…
