My favorite part of Summer is all the fresh, colorful fruits and vegetables. When I am at the grocery store or the local fruit and vegetable stand, I want everything. The colors and smells jump out at me. Before you know it I’ve got a ton of fresh produce. Perfect for a Fit + Fresh Raspberry Summer Salad. This gorgeous summer salad is loaded with healthy and tasty ingredients. Fresh lettuce, healthy greens, tender mushrooms, and sweet raspberries.

Fit Fresh Summer Salad with Raspberries

 

Fit + Fresh Raspberry Summer Salad. Yep, huge salads are my thing for the summer.

I don’t know how to make a small salad.  My daddy always tells me ” you overdo it”. But I think a salad is one of those meals that the more you do, the better.

If you are anything like me, when you start building a salad you think “Oh yeah, I bought some mushrooms a few days ago”…or “I wonder if those raspberries in the fridge are still good”. OOOhhh, let’s use snow peas. And tomatoes. And how about those beets?

Yep. Fresh fruits and veggies have taken over my fridge and kitchen. I’ve got melons on the counter, peaches in a bowl, and the fridge…

Let’s just say the refrigerator is fully stocked with the bounty of the season.

For me, the biggest problem with having so much fresh produce is using it all before it spoils. Great plans at the grocery store for all of the new recipes you are going to make often get sidetracked by…well…life.

I absolutely hate that feeling of going to the crisper drawer to grab that brand new head of lettuce and seeing it ruined. Or worse, the really expensive produce.

Wasting food is one of my pet peeves. I hate wasting food. (Read more about my thoughts on saving money on food here.)

 

Lettuce and mushrooms in plastic Fresh Works storage containers

 

A few weeks ago I learned about Rubbermaid FreshWorks product storage. Hello, these containers are a money-saver. The patented FreshVent™ Technology keeps produce fresher longer.

See that green tray in the bottom of our lettuce? That is the Crisp Tray™ that elevates produce away from moisture and promotes airflow to help prevent spoilage.

When I found the opportunity to work with the brand, I jumped right on it. Seriously, for all of you home cooks and foodies who love fresh fruits and veggies as much as I do, get these now. They are well worth the investment.

For this Fit Fresh Summer Salad with Raspberries, I went with all of the fresh stored goodies on hand. I knew one thing : I wanted a fresh, bright and colorful salad.

Here’s what I used for this healthy summer salad:

  • Crisp iceberg lettuce (kept nice and fresh in my large FreshWorks container)
  • Spring Mix greens with herbs
  • Ripe cherry tomatoes
  • Sliced white mushrooms (had these for a week, kept in my medium FreshWorks)
  • Crunchy rings of sweet mini peppers
  • Slivered red onion
  • Sweet tart fresh raspberries (in the small FreshWorks)
  • Green tender snow peas
  • Sliced beets
  • Jarred capers (for the fun of it!)

      The raspberries were a last minute addition. I was trying to keep everything in shades of green and red and …raspberries fit the bill perfectly.
