Tis the season for summer barbecues. Not sure what to bring? This Red White and Blue Salad is incredibly tasty and you can put it together in under 15 minutes! A summer salad is a fantastic choice to support your healthy eating choices. Summer produce is the best! I just can’t get enough.

Besides being delicious, red white and blue salad is festive and perfect for summer holidays like 4th of July or Memorial day.

For the past few years, we have been getting together with the same family on the 4th and it has become our tradition. We affectionately refer to them now as our “holiday friends”. Because no only do we see them on the 4th, but also on Christmas Eve, and sometimes Easter. Our “holiday friends” are awesome! Do you have any July 4 traditions, or Memorial Day?

With the patriotic theme, there are so many festive foods to make and not enough time (isn’t that always the case)! I was inspired to make this salad by a post I saw on Real Mom Kitchen.

  • The dressing for this salad really makes it, but the oil and vinegar used are not your everyday pantry items. Find the Persian lime olive oil here and the Coconut balsamic vinegar here.
  • You can substitute olive oil and red wine vinegar if you’d like. It will change the flavor, but it’s still de-lish and you won’t have any complaints!
  • If you do use olive oil and red wine vinegar, add a tablespoon of maple syrup or honey to sweeten it.
What are you making for the 4th? How are you celebrating? I’d love to hear from you!

    So delicious, and festive! Loved the flavor and colors, nothing like fresh berries in a salad with the sweet and salty of the blue cheese!

  2. Chellie…While this salad looks beautiful and I know it will taste out of this world, I think I need to try it just for the Persian Lime Oil and the Coconut Vinegar! Are you kidding me! Those sound out of this world! I always love your recipes my friend.
    Hugs, Lynn

  3. Holly, we have a few of those oil and vinegar specialty shops popping up around here. I got mine at Fustini’s. You can order online, but you may find another source closer to you. So delicious! I’ve added it to fruit salad too (like an actual fruit salad, not fruit on lettuce) just for some coconut flavor.

  4. This looks so good! I love fruit in my salad. I think my kids would love this too. Pinned so I can make this later! 🙂 I’ve never heard of coconut vinegar. I’ll have to look that up.

  5. Chellie,
    It was so nice to run into you a few weeks ago and catch up. This salad is so pretty. It will be on my 4th of July menu this summer. 🙂
