This Bacon Berry Salad with Mojito Dressing one of my favorite salad recipes.
I received product in exchange for this post. All opinions are 100% my own.
This salad has so many flavors and textures going on, it’s insane. But some how…some way, it all works.
I can’t even begin to tell you how I came up with this recipe. I really don’t know. I was looking for something a little different for lunch. I had some strawberries, so I added them. Blueberries were in season, so I added those too. You can never have enough berries.
It needed some crunch so I added pecans. Have I ever told you how much I love pecans? And, is it pee-cans? Or peh-cahns? I really don’t know so I use them interchangeably.
The salad needed something to cut through the sweetness of the berries so I added blue cheese. I have a thing for stinky cheeses with bold flavor. I just love ’em.
Then, because it’s bacon month, and because EVERYTHING is better with bacon, I added some crumbled bacon to the top. Why not?!
Now, stay with me. This is where it starts to get a little whacky.
I drizzled this luscious Mojito dressing all over the salad!
I know what you’re thinking…bacon and mojitos? Blue cheese and mojitos?
Seriously, folks, it works. And, by works, I mean this is earth shatteringly good!
I love, love, love mojitos. So, I thought, why not make it into a salad dressing.
This dressing has only three ingredients and it came together fast. I used the Torani Mojito Mint syrup to give the dressing the minty kick that it needed.
I don’t know what I’ve done without this syrup in my life. It’s definitely going to make cocktail time a LOT easier. And, I can a mojito kick to anything! It’s definitely a keeper!
