Berry Festive Wreath Salad

Courtesy of The Happy Raw Kitchen

To form the wreath, place a cup in the middle of a large round serving platter.

Arrange the leaves of baby lettuce in small bunches around it.

Add berries, I had blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, and red raspberries.

Remove glass from center and add a fruit leather bow, if desired.

Here are some step by step pics for the bow:) Hope they help!

Cut using pizza wheel... Bow 'loops' strip approx 10"x2"
Streamer strip approx 8"x1", cut "V" in ends
Center strip 3"to 4"x2", fold in half. Trim off extra after wrapping.

1. Fold ends of loop strip in towards middle and scrunch. Turn over.
2. Scrunch streamer strip in center.
3. Stack bow on top of streamer and wrap with folded certer piece.
