Berry and Pistachio Salad

This is a very simple salad with a versatile balsamic vinaigrette that can really be put on any salad.  


  • 5 oz spring mix
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries or cranberries
  • 1/4 cup pistachios 
  • 5-6 large sliced strawberries (blackberries and raspberries work well too)
  • feta cheese


  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4 cup olive oil


Place ingredients for salad in a large salad bowl.  

Combine ingredients for dressing in a mason jar and shake to combine.  

I prefer to have people dress the salad themselves since spring mix gets soggy quickly and doesn't store well if it has already been dressed if there is any left over.  Store remaining dressing in the refrigerator for later.
