Summer is in full swing and our family is doing our most to make the most of it and cross off items on our Summer Bucket List! My very favorite summer tradition since we moved to Texas is picking Blueberries each year. I remember growing up reading berry-picking stories and I always dreamed of getting to do it for myself. It is just as much fun as I always dreamed and the fresh berries are simply amazing. I’m not even a huge blueberry fan, but I can eat these by the bowlful.

This year we tried out a new farm that’s closer to our new home. It was a great experience, but they sell theirs by the gallon.  Which means that we ended up with a whoooole lot of blueberries.

Another thing I learned quickly after moving to Texas is that fresh produce goes bad, sooo quickly. I rinsed and left some strawberries out and overnight from the heat and humidity they’d molded by the next day.

So when I found out about the new Rubbermaid® FreshWorks™ Produce Saver I knew that I needed it in my life in every size! Their Patented FreshVent™ Technology keeps produce fresher, longer. It does this by allowing excess CO2 to escape, delaying produce spoilage.

Then the Crisp Tray™ elevates produce away from moisture and promotes proper airflow to help prevent spoilage. My favorite part? Lid, container, and tray are dishwasher safe and BPA free. My least favorite chore is hand washing dishes so this is an absolute must for any item I’ll be using frequently. (Get $2 cash back on FreshWorksTM Now From Ibotta, offer valid while supplies last)

I’ve been making All-Things-Blueberry to use up that huge amount we picked, and as much as I love dessert I wanted to opt for something a little less processed sugary for the weekend. When I was at Kroger picking up my Rubbermaid FreshWorks Produce Savers from the food storage aisle I looked around for inspiration. This is when I discovered that they had some drool worthy Raspberries, Blackberries, and Strawberries in the produce section. They made the choice to whip up a Berry Salad a no-brainier!

I also picked up a big bunch of Kale to make Kale chips. This fits perfectly in the FreshWorks Large container which is designed for heads of lettuce or an entire bag of grapes. Me and the kids looove Kale Chips. If you’ve never made them before they are super easy, super delicious, and so much better than any packaged form of chips!

The Rubbermaid® FreshWorks™  by putting the produce into it whole, without washing it first. It basically replaces the container from the store to keep it fresh while you’re waiting to make your recipe or eat it!

Now that you’ve got everything stored freshly away it’s time for the recipe!

Very Berry Salad Recipe

Ingredients:

Use all fresh produce, if it’s a little early or late in the season for any berry try the organic section for better-looking options. If you have a U-Pick place anywhere close use those berries instead and just put them in equal amounts to all your other berries.

  • 1 Package Blackberries
  • 1 Package Raspberries
  • 1 Package Blueberries
  • 1 Package Strawberries
  • 1 Lime
  • 1/4 -1/2 Cup Orange Juice (fresh squeezed or from a container)

First, cut off tops and slice up strawberries.

Next, rinse and put in all the berries together in large bowl.

Now you’ll cut the lime in half and juice both halves over berry blend.

Pour Orange Juice over berries and stir together gently till well blended. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

This salad couldn’t be more simple but it’s absolutely delicious! The kids and I gobbled it all up! It’s so easy you probably don’t even need a printable recipe to remember–but just in case here you go!
