SUPERFOOD SALAD WITH BLUEBERRY LEMON VINAIGRETTE

HOW TO MAKE SUPERFOOD SALAD WITH BLUEBERRY VINAIGRETTE:

I’ve combined so many delicious superfoods, here are the ingredients you need to gather up:

  • arugula
  • raspberries
  • avocados
  • walnuts
  • blueberries
  • red onion
  • chia seeds
  • avocado oil
  • lemon
  • apple cider vinegar
  • dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper

To make the salad, you’ll start with a bed of arugula. Add the remaining salad ingredients: raspberries, avocados, walnuts, blueberries, red onion, and chia seeds.

Using a food processor or blender, blend up the dressing: oil, blueberries, lemon zest, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients.

Toss everything to enjoy!

RECIPE SWAPS/ADAPTATIONS: 

This salad is easy customizable too:

Greens: I love arugula, but realize not others do. Swap in spinach, romaine or kale in it’s place if you’d like

Nuts: swap out the walnuts for any nut like almonds, cashews, or pecans

Berries: Strawberries or blackberries can be used. Only have one type of berry, no problem!

Protein: Add in grilled chicken or Salmon for a complete meal.
