BBQ Header

When hosting (or attending) a BBQ you want quick and easy throw together salads. Our summer berry salad with poppy seed dressing uses fresh seasonal berries that add some extra zing, tasty pecans for a nice crunch, and the dressing really brings out the summer flavours. We made this for a BBQ last weekend and it was the winner of the table, with all the guests going back for seconds (and thirds!).">
