I suppose these bars should have a better name. They’re luscious, creamy and dreamy from the silky custard topping, just bursting with blueberries, all the way down to the gorgeous shortbread crust.
I’ve been making this Chicken & Fruit Salad for years, originally culled from Cooking Light. It’s just such a gorgeous salad, full of all kinds of great things and it’s all set off by a creamy raspberry dressing. It’s one of my favorite ways to make sure I get some fruit in my diet along with a few greens. On a hot summer day, there’s nothing better.
There’s a little something about this combination of fruit that does it for me: Honey Dew, Strawberries and Blueberries. Add in a simple, lemony dressing (I’m almost embarrassed to tell you, it’s so easy) of lemon yogurt, finely zested lemon and a few poppy seeds, and there you have it. Familiar, tasty and just a bit sophisticated; this always goes over well.
There’s salad, and then there’s SALAD – you know, the one that shouts rather than whispers? The one you want MORE of…the salad that has that little something extra to take it over the top. What is it about salty, sweet, tart that makes you want to take another bite and another and another…
There are shortcakes, and then there are shortcakes, and these Three Berry Shortcakes are the latter – an absolute show stopper of a summer dessert. Wait, this is more than a dessert, this is an extravaganza.
