Fresh Raspberries and Blackberries in Lime Ginger Dressing

Thanks for visiting! If you like this page, please don't forget to stumble :)

Oh Raspberries and Lime, how I love thee.  Now lets add blackberries and ginger to the picture.  Divine!  Who knew?  Obviously Kat of Study Food did!

For this month's Taste & Create event I was partnered with Kat.  When I saw her recipe for Fruit Salad Dressing, I knew I had to try it.  Anything that has lime in it is going to attract my attention in a big way!  Kat used different fruits - I decided to pair mine with Raspberries and Blackberries.  They are on sale right now in the markets and honestly, I am a Raspberry/Lime kind of girl anyway!



I will admit I was a little bit leery of the fresh ginger in the dressing - but I did it anyway, and wow, it was not a mistake!  The fresh ginger just made the juice even more fresh if that is at all possible!


Back when Taste & Create started there were a lot more participants.  Unfortunately, there are very few anymore and I have to give Nicole a lot of credit (and Min!)  for foraging ahead and keeping it alive.  I am really glad I did because the bloggers that are involved in this event are doing it for their love of cooking - not just for the opportunity to be featured on someone else's blog. I love this event because it does bring me to a blog I may not otherwise have found....and to recipes as simple as this one that I made from Kat's blog.  If you haven't joined in with Taste & Create, you really should give it a try.  You will have fun, you may be challenged, but you will not be disappointed...I promise!

  1. I don't think I'd ever get sick of eating just plain berries. The lime-ginger dressing sounds really refreshing and a good way to change up normal berries!

  3. That's quite the fruit salad. The ginger must really compliment the berries.

  9. I fell in love with raspberries and lime when I made a lime curd tart and topped it with raspberries. Delicious! And this is so simple, but showcases the flavours so well!
