Healthy Fruit Filled Summer Salad
Looking for a fresh, healthy salad to serve this summer? Check out this layered mix! Actually, it’s one of my ultimate favorite summer salad combos. This healthy salad adds a ‘wowza’ to the table if you’re entertaining, but it’s deliciously good to eat any day of the week. And, the leftovers are fantastic!
YUM! I just love the combination of fresh strawberries, blueberries, pineapple and oranges on a bed of greens. Add in the honey goat cheese and chopped pecans and it’s a total winner.
Cheers to summer flavors!
- 1 cup diced Pineapple, fresh
- 1 cup of sliced Strawberries, fresh
- 1 cup of Blueberries, fresh
- 1 cup of naval orange, peeled and diced
- 3/4 cup honey goat cheese, finely chopped
- ½ cup finely chopped pecans (optional)
- 5 oz. container of spring mixed green salad mix
Place half of the greens in a bowl and top with ¼ cup of the pecans, 1/4 cup of the goat cheese, ½ cup of the blueberries, ½ cup of the strawberries, 1/2 cup of the oranges & ½ cup of the pineapple.
Add the remaining greens on top & then add the additional fruit, goat cheese and top off with the remaining chopped nuts.
Why Naval Oranges? There are NO seeds within the fruit = no need to spend time removing seeds. I LOVE a shortcut/timesaver no matter how small.
Chopped Nuts: In the baking aisle you can find chopped pecans so that you can sprinkle them on top; no chopping time required!
Honey Goat Cheese? Typically honey goat cheese can be located within the specialty cheese display at your local supermarket.
Prep Ahead: Make sure all of your fruit is properly washed before using. Hull the strawberries before slicing.
Purchase a Pre-Made Salad Dressing: If you’re looking to save on time, my pick for a dressing is a poppyseed salad dressing. In fact, I love some of the poppyseed combos found in the cooler area located in the produce aisle at your local supermarket.
Make a Homemade Dressing: However, if you’re looking for the perfect pairing, try my Orange Honey Blossom Dressing; it’s actually quick, easy and just the right finisher for this salad mix. I’ve included the link below.
It’s the perfect fruity, fresh topping on this fruit filled summer salad.
