A big, huge THANK YOU to BRIANNAS for sponsoring this post!
It is most certainly not Summer yet, but yesterday it was warm enough to wear a t-shirt without a jacket, so I was feeling a little inspired. One of my (many) favorite things about Summer is all of the fruit that’s in-season, and so when a little warm weather hit yesterday, I wanted to make a really good salad with a bunch of berries in it.
As a vegetarian, I am all for a good salad – there’s no such thing as a boring salad in this house! This one is perfect as a side, or you could even have it as a main course with a little protein on top (I’d cut up a veggie burger and throw it on top, but chicken would be good as well).
For the dressing, I used BRIANNAS Rich Poppyseed. I hadn’t tried it before, but I absolutely love every other type of salad dressing they make so I knew this one would be great. And guess what? I was right.
- 1/2 of an avocado
- 1/2 cup of blueberries
- 3 tablespoons dried cranberries
- 3 tablespoons shelled sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup of pecans (I used honey toasted pecans in my salad)
- 1/2 cup of sliced strawberries
- 1/4 cup of feta
- Black pepper + dried dill
- BRIANNAS Rich Poppyseed salad dressing
Toss all ingredients together, sprinkle with black pepper and dill, then toss with poppyseed salad dressing. Serve immediately. Serves about 3-4 people as a side salad. Yum!
