Adding fruit to salads is a great way to add extra fiber to your already nutritious salad. Plan a day to go berry picking with this kids this summer and come home to make this Triple Berry Summer Salad. Getting kids involved with making healthy foods can allow them to get excited about healthy eating. Feel free to substitute the berries in this recipe to whichever berries are in season!
Triple Berry Summer Salad
- 9 ounces spinach
- 1 cup strawberries
- 1 cup raspberries sliced
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds toasted
- 1/3 cup basil chopped
- 1 avocado chopped
- 4 ounces Goat Cheese
1. Divide baby spinach between plates then top with berries, almonds, basil and chopped avocado. Crumble goat cheese on top then dress with salad dressing. I recommend strawberry balsamic vinegar, but any olive-oil based vinaigrette would be fantastic.
