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!
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!
If you like this recipe for fresh berries, you may also like this twist that KC Kitchen Chopper has on her blog for Honey Balsalmic Marinated Berries!
