Let's Talk Healthy: Summertime Salad

Tired of the same old salad? We are too, so we're here this week with something new! I wanted to make eating salads fun again. Let's face it, we all love fried chicken on a salad, but there are yummy alternatives. 

My ingredients for a healthy summer salad:





Total Time: 15 Minutes
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Mix Time: 10 Minutes


Spring Mix
1 bag of almond halves (A great source of protein)
1 bag of dried cranberries 
1 container of bacon bits 
1 diced avocado
1 container of strawberries (cut into halves)
1 container of feta cheese
1 bottle of balsamic vinaigrette dressing (I used Panera Bread dressing)
1/4 cup of orange juice

I know all of these ingredients sounds random, but trust me when I tell you that it is so good

  • In a separate bowl, mix everything except for the spring mix together. 
  • Let the mixed ingredients set for about 10 minutes.
  • Add the separate bowl of ingredients to the lettuce. 
  • Once everything is added, mix it up and you have a delicious salad perfect for lunch or a starter salad for dinner.  

Note: The size of this salad will be multiple servings, which is perfect if you like to meal plan. I meal plan and it makes it so much easier to eat healthy throughout the week. I set one day aside every week to make all of my meals that I can either get from the fridge or heat up in a matter of minutes.
