FAQs

Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions. 

How to store

Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days. I do not recommend freezing this salad as the berries will become mushy. 

What to serve with?

This salad is delicious on its own, or you can serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. 

Can I make this ahead? 

Yes, you can make the dressing ahead of time and store it in the fridge until you are ready to use it. I do not recommend making the salad more than a few hours ahead of time as the berries will start to release their juice and the salad will become watery.
