Fresh berries, spinach, pineapple, and avocado all covered in a perfectly sweet honey poppyseed dressing! This berry salad recipe can be whipped up in less than 15 minutes and is the perfect Summer salad!
Summer recipes are still in full swing in my house and I love a simple, sweet salad. This berry salad is beyond delicious and lemme tell you why:
- Fresh blueberries
- Fresh strawberries
- Spinach, romaine, arugula, mixed greens etc. Basically whatever lettuce you fancy
- Honey poppyseed dressing!
It’s actually inspired by a Summer salad at Panera Bread but I bet you this dressing is much better for you!
Side note, for all my vegans and vegetarians out there, you can get chicken substituted with avocado on any salad on the menu. How freakin’ cool is that?!
This salad is super quick to pull together and the dressing can be made by throwing all the ingredients in a mason jar!
