Enjoy this beautiful Power Berry Avocado Almond Chia Salad chock full of fresh salad greens, fruit and heart- healthy avocado, nuts and seeds for lunch or dinner.
I love fresh berries of all kinds and now that it’s getting warmer, lighter salad greens have been making their way onto the dinner table.
I find salads are a great way to get in my daily serving of fruits and vegetables in the Spring and Summer. It’s easy to get two cups of leafy salad greens and one cup of fruit in at dinner this way. Including healthy fats like avocado, almonds and chia seeds (exceptionally high in omega-3 fatty acids) completes this Power Salad.
All I needed on this salad was a fresh squeeze of lime, but you can drizzle some raw honey on top if you like too. Since this salad already has some healthy fats in it, I didn’t use any oil.
This salad was so pretty, I couldn’t get enough pictures of it.
My husband loved the blackberries in this salad and my kids ate this without any dressing.
