Grand Marnier Berry Salad

I love fresh berries! I don’t think there’s a way I’ve tried them that I haven’t liked: pies, tarts, compotes, preserves… the list could go on and on. And I’d be hard-pressed to pick my favorite berry. That’s why this recipe appealed to me: berry salad with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries all in one recipe. Plus it listed the total time to make as 10 minutes. It’s not often I find a recipe that’s so quick to make. I definitely had to give this one a try.

Raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and sliced strawberries come together beautifully with fresh mint and a light, tangy and sweet lime Grand Marnier dressing.

The Ingredients

There aren’t many ingredients to this recipe, and they were all easy to find. I don’t use Grand Marnier very often, so a $36+ bottle seemed pricey for one salad. Fortunately, I was able to find a 50ml mini for just over $6. It was more than enough to make this salad and a much less expensive option.

The Process

This berry salad was incredibly fast and easy to make. I had a beautiful bowl of it made and garnished in just 10 minutes. Seriously, 10 minutes!

Most of the berries just need to be rinsed and tossed into a bowl. The strawberries were the exception, and I decided to quarter them. My thinking was the quarters would be small enough that I would get other berries in each bite.

I used the leaves from 3 mint sprigs in the salad, and I had more than half the package left over. One lime gave me just about enough juice for this recipe, but I did have to top it off with a little bottled lime juice. I’d recommend buying 2 limes to be on the safe side if you don’t normally keep bottled lime juice around (I like to just for these situations).

To Serve

Something about this berry salad makes me think of summer and cooking out. This recipe would make a wonderful dessert with BBQ ribs.

So how was it?

This is a beautiful and tasty berry salad! The lime, honey and Grand Marnier mixture coats the berries and clings to them. It's such a delicious compliment to them, too. I found I got a little bit of a different taste in each bite depending on the berries in it. I really loved the contrast of the tangy and sweet. The berries ranged from sweet to a little tart, and they went so well with the sweet liqueur and honey as well as the tart lime.
