Ultimate Summer Salad

The best part of summer is all the fresh fruits and vegetables you can combine to make a delicious salad!

The first time I saw fruit in a salad, I was a little skeptical, but decided to try it. I am fully a fruit in savory salad supporter now. Honestly, just throw a bunch of veggies and fruits my way and I'm a happy camper. This particular salad has blueberries, strawberries, avocado, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, red onions, and radishes. I think it was the first time my family had had radishes, which is something I ate a lot as a kid because we had them in our garden. I served my salad up with an apple cider vinaigrette, but I'm sure you could use a wide variety of dressings and it would still be fantastic. I also served mine up with some grilled chicken to make it a main dish. Without protein, it would be a wonderful side salad.

What you need:
  • Lettuce, chopped
  • 2 cups strawberries, quartered
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup radishes, sliced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • Dressing of choice - I went with an apple cider vinaigrette, I recommend either vinaigrette or balsamic of some sort
  • Grilled chicken, cut into strips (optional)
  1. Serve lettuce topped with strawberries, cucumbers, blueberries, radishes, avocado, red onion, carrots, and tomatoes. Top with chicken and drizzle with dressing.

This Grilled Chicken with Strawberry Salad is another fabulous salad with fruit in it. It makes my heart happy. A salad with fruit that I want to try very soon is this Berry Avocado Grilled Chicken Salad from Real Housemoms that features homemade poppyseed dressing.
