This salad has been my lunch regularly for about two weeks now. I just can't get enough of it! Everything I love the most is in there. Fresh berries, blue cheese, spinach, and this amazing Energy Crunch Trail Mix. I found the mix at my local grocery store, HEB. It has soybeans, dried cranberries, almonds & pumpkin kernels.
When it started out, I was using a bottled dressing. But this week I decided to switch it up and make my own - which turned out fabulous and even more healthy!
I like to serve this salad with a small dish of low fat cottage cheese on the side for a bit of added protein and to cut through some of the sweet and tartness of the dish.
All in all, there is nothing I would change about this salad and I can honestly see myself eating it all through spring and summer. I've got to be bikini ready after all!
Yum. Look at that chaotic and perfectly blissful mess.
Heaven on a plate, I tell you.
