Blueberries, strawberries–so many berries! And to think the season for these delicious fruits is so short! That is why OBC Eats is indulging in a Berry, Feta, Chicken Salad. Berries are nutritionally beneficial, loaded with antioxidants and are great for your skin. Since delicate berry skins easily absorb pesticides, it’s best to eat organic whenever possible; organic berries are most abundant and affordable during the summer months. So how to incorporate these berries into your meals, rather than just a snack? Our Berry, Feta, Chicken Salad is a great way to make a satisfying yet quick meal filled with a balance between sweet and tart.
