This salad comes together really quickly and is perfect in the summer when berries are in season, or in the winter when you are ok with paying a little more for berries because you are having withdrawal symptoms (the latter is how I currently can be classified). I just make sure to stretch that bursting berry flavor through as many meals as I can (:
Use for a complete dinner or lunch and mix it up with your choice of berries and nuts!
I made mine for lunch today and prepared a second for my lunch tomorrow!
1-2 cups spinach
1/2 grilled chicken breast, cubed (omit or replace with tofu if you are vegan or vegetarian)
1/8 cup of blueberries, red raspberries and blackberries
3 dates, chopped
1 Tbsp. sunflower seeds
1/8 cup pecans, chopped
1 tsp. flax seed
1-2 Tbsp. balsamic, pomegranate vinaigrette, or other light dressing that goes well with berries
Top everything on your bed of spinach and enjoy!
