Triple Berry Summer Salad : So Delicious


I first came across this recipe idea three years ago, and Wow ... Wow ... Wow, it's still simply amazing! This triple berry summer salad is simply wonderful. Just have a read of the ingredients and your taste buds are already in action savouring the great taste. Make a note of the ingredients - go out and get them and then just make and enjoy this super summer salad.

Ingredients:
Serves four
9oz baby spinach, torn
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup raspberries
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1/3 cup chopped basil
1 avocado, chopped
4oz goat cheese

Directions:
1. Divide baby spinach between plates then top with berries, almonds*, basil and chopped avocado. Crumble goat cheese on top then dress with salad dressing. You could use a strawberry balsamic vinegar, but any olive-oil based vinaigrette would be fantastic.
2. So easy and fabulously fresh, no-cook, and light ...yet filling from the goat cheese and avocado. You could if you wish serve it with some grilled chicken breast marinated in some of that balsamic vinegar. Dear readers it's entirely up to you.

*The easiest way to toast almonds is to spread them on a plate and microwave in thirty second increments until they’re golden brown. You could also do this in the oven, but sometimes you just don't need the oven on!

I hope you enjoy this taste of summer soon, see original recipe idea here

All the best Jan

This looks delicious, Jan...a perfect summer salad. And when summer comes around again down this way (and it will all too soon)...I might just have to use some of our local avos and put them to good use by making this salad! :)

Our strawberries are ripe now, so this is the perfect idea for using some of them. No raspberries or blueberries, yet, so I'll triple the strawberries! I love summer food!
