Paleo Berry & Lime Salad Dressing: Refreshing & Yummy

The other day we decided to whip up a dressing inspired by color. Purple and Green - YUM-Oh!
Last summer I made a point of buying flats of locally grown berries to freeze for winter use. SO glad I had my lil' brain cap a-thinking. So I pulled some out, muddled it with some other ingredients and VOILA!

This one whips up in no time - easy-peasy. It was SO good on our spinach & steak salad. 

I used the following ingredients:

1 Cup Berries
Juice of 1 Lime
1/2 Cup Local Apple Cider Vinegar 
(totally worth seeking out your local options - way more flavor) 
Blue Agave to taste (depends on strength of vinegar)
1/2 Cup Olive Oil

...and time to muddle the berries & other ingredients together. Then it is ready to serve.

I am telling you this was so simple and delicious. I loved how fresh the flavor was. I mentioned earlier we were having a steak salad. It was very Paleo except for one ingredient ---> Goat Cheese. We couldn't imagine having a perfectly peppered flank steak without it's heavenly pair. I'll tell you what we chose to include in our salad and you can decide for yourself what you would like to drizzle this dressing on for your lil' taste buds to devour. 

Our salad was what we call a LOADED salad. You know the kind you keep tossing ingredients into way beyond that which would be suggested in any salad recipe known to man? Yeah - that was us. An everything but the kitchen sink salad. We started with spinach and added: cucumber, zucchini, celery, mushrooms, carrot, tomato, pecans, goat cheese, chopped fresh basil and avocado. Grilled flank steak seared to perfection with a peppered crust. Then topped it off in our newly created Berry-Lime Dressing. 

We did not regret one delicious ingredient. It was...
