One thing I LOVE about summer is the salads! A few weeks ago, I came across this pin:
As soon as I saw it, I knew I needed this salad in my life, or at least a rendition of it! You can click on the picture to get the original recipe. I love arugula, but didn’t have any on hand, so I used mixed baby springs instead. Also, I don’t do sugar and only do honey once in a great great while (we’re talking 1-2 times a year) , so I made some substitutions for the dressing and used regular old toasted almonds instead of sweet ones. Lastly, I added avocado as an ingredient, because…well, who doesn’t love avocado…and I thought it would go perfectly with the other flavors this salad has to offer – I was right!
- For the dressing:
-2 tablespoons lemon juice
-pinch of garlic powder
-pinch of sea salt
-pinch of stevia (I probably used a little more than a pinch, but -anyone who has used stevia knows that a tiny bit goes a LONG way)
-1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oilMix all ingredients together wellFor the salad:
- mixed baby greens (red and green lettuce, spinach, arugula, etc.)
- toasted almonds
- crumbled goat cheese
- prepared dressing
1.) Top the baby greens with avocado, blueberries, toasted almonds and goat cheese
2.) Drizzle with dressing and enjoy!
