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!

Here is my rendition of this salad with the changes/substitutions I made:blueberrysalad

  • 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 oil
    Mix all ingredients together wellFor the salad:
  • mixed baby greens (red and green lettuce, spinach, arugula, etc.)
  • avocado
  • blueberries
  • 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!
