Summer Berry Salad

Now that the sunshine is finally here, I’m all about eating light, fresh and seasonal meals and keeping my energy up.

This summery Berry Salad is the perfect dish to serve up when the sun is scorching and you don’t want anything too heavy.

It is refreshing and full of flavour, thanks to the delicious, juicy berries and a lime, basil and mint dressing.

This summery dish is made in collaboration with my friends at Solgar, who make the most incredible and effective supplements. Here, I used their Methylcobalamin supplement, which is perfect for any fellow vegans because it helps to boost vitamin B12 levels. Great for giving me the energy I need to power through the day!

Let me know if you enjoy this summery dish!
