Take advantage of juicy summer berries.

Summer berries are terrific on their own, but they're also a fantastic way to upgrade salads. Here, seven refreshing summer salads to make with berries.

1. Warm Chanterelle-and-Berry Salad with Cheddar

Food & Wine:

Chef Eric Warnstedt pairs umami-packed chanterelle mushrooms with blackberries, raspberries and one of his favorite artisanal cheeses, aged Cabot Clothbound Cheddar.

2. Baby Lettuces with Feta, Strawberries and Almonds

Food & Wine:

Try a bright, berry-scented rosé with this summery salad.

3. Kohlrabi, Fennel and Blueberry Salad

Food & Wine:

Kohlrabi tastes a lot like a broccoli stem, but it's milder and sweeter and the texture is crisper. Star chef Stephanie Izard thinks it's an underappreciated vegetable, so she makes it the star of her delicious salad, served raw in very thin slices.

4. Melon, Berry and Feta Salad

Food & Wine:

This amazing salad can be made with whatever melon looks best at the market.

5. Roast Chicken Panzanella

Food & Wine:

"In the height of summer, what's better than tons of tomatoes and cucumbers in a salad?" chef Evan Rich asks. He and wife, Sarah, give this traditional Tuscan bread salad a California spin with strawberries, cilantro and toasted pumpkin seeds.

6. Spiced and Pickled Blackberries

Food & Wine:

These tart and aromatic plump blackberries are delicious in salads

7. Fourth of July Red, White and Blueberry Salad

Food & Wine:

Blueberries and raspberries star in this fun, festive fruit salad.
