Apple Pecan Summer-Berry Salad!

This salad is perfect for any summer gathering, party or lunch!

The combination of fruit, nuts and dark leafy greens makes this salad not only delicious, but high up on a healthy scale.

It also only took me 5 minutes to put it together. Easy and delicious, my favorite combination 🙂

Ingredients:

  • Apple Pecan Dressing
  • Green Apple Slices
  • Strawberries
  • Cucumbers
  • Sliced Almonds
  • Dark Leafy Spring Lettuce
  • Spinach Leaves

I found that this salad is better shaken. When you just pour the dressing over the lettuce, it tends to clump up on various ingredients and doesn’t reach to others. Trust me, this incredible dressing is so tasty, you’ll want it to reach every piece!

Make sure not to over-dress your salad. The delicate sweetness of the Apple Pecan dressing is delicious, but it’s easy to over do it. Start small, and add as needed.

Enjoy!

Since it’s Saturday today, I had a bit more time in the mornings then I usually do. I decided to get a bit more creative with my morning smoothies by mixing ingredients that I wouldn’t usually.

For a bit of added protein, I threw in a handful of almonds. They made the smoothie surprisingly smoother then usual, and the carrots blended together perfectly with the strawberries and apple slices.

This smoothie has an excellent variety of nutrition, and will make your taste buds smile for hours!
