Those delicious tasting fresh organic blackberries I included in my Fresh Mixed Berry Vinaigrette Recipe are so much more than just powerful antioxidants. Blackberries are also extremely high in some of the highest forms of chronic disease and cancer-fighting compounds: vitamins C, E, and ellagic acid. They also have high levels of the soluble fiber known as pectin, a substance that studies link to lowered levels of cholesterol.

Research on fresh organic raspberries has shown that the anti-cancer benefits of raspberries may extend beyond their basic antioxidant and anti-inflammatory aspects. Many studies have suggested that increasing your daily consumption of plant foods like fresh organic raspberries decreased the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, while also promoting a healthy looking skin, increased energy levels, and overall lower body weight with most.

I love berries, they just have so many wonderful qualities and benefits. How can you go wrong adding fresh organic berries to a delicious salad? I mean the flavor, color, and the taste of fresh berries are outstanding. Have you ever added fresh berries to a salad? Oh, my goodness it’s a delicious flavor.
