Avocado, blueberry and feta salad
Our nutritionist Melinda has been talking about good fats and bad fats.
And as we have learned not all fats are bad.
Here is a great summer recipe for a salad that contains some of those good fats like avocado, feta cheese, grape seed oil and pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
It also happens to be delicious and simple to make.
6 cups mixed lettuce greens ( I’ve used Spring Mix or combined romaine, kale and spinach)
1 cup blueberries (from our garden!)
½ cup crumbled feta
2 avocados, peeled, pitted and sliced
2 Tbsp toasted pumpkin seeds
1 lemon, juiced
2 Tbsp grape seed oil
3 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar
2 tsp honey
salt & pepper, to taste
Plate greens. Add blueberries, avocado, cheese and seeds. In a measuring cup, combine oil, vinegar, lemon juice, honey, salt & pepper. Whisk until smooth and honey is blended. Drizzle dressing over plated salad. Serve & enjoy!
(To make this recipe easier I have also used Brianne’s dressing and salad topper mix from Costco).
