This coconut berry salad recipe is perfect for any patriotic celebrations!
As many of you know, I’m not a fan of the summer heat here in California. I mean, It’s June, and we’re already in the 90’s. Not my cup of tea. However….
I do love summer for all it’s fabulous produce and all those wonderful festivities! And I guess you could say I’m in a patriotic mood a little early this year. I think with all the upheaval that has happened in my life as of late, it feels so good to have something dependable in the near future to look forward to.
Every year, we go to a local high school, walk out to the field, lay down a blanket and a picnic and wait for the fireworks to starts directly over our heads. Mini Chef gets very excited at the idea of staying up late and seeing all those beautiful colors explode into the night sky, and I enjoy the 4th more and more every year simply due to Mini Chef’s excitement. As a parent, you really do learn to see the world through your child’s eyes. And what an amazing view it is!
So this year, I thought I’d plan out our picnic a bit early so that I can share the menu with you guys too. This Clean Eating Coconut Berry Salad will most definitely make it into our picnic basket. I mean, let’s face it. Good food AND fireworks? What’s not to love?
