Berry Avocado Salad with Yogurt Cilantro Dressing

berry_avocado_salad

We love fruity salads and this one just hit the top of our list! It’s seriously so good and SO good for you too- full of phytonutrients and it’s got healthy fats from the avocados and almonds that help you to absorb the veggie and fruit nutrients like lycopene and carotenes. Plus, the creamy cilantro yogurt dressing is simply to die for!

 

Pssst… if you’re looking for some other salad recipes, you may like these–after all we’re always whipping up all kinds of salads, just like our Mom did (and still does!), from appetizer salads like our Strawberry and Citrus Salad with Avocado  and our Summer Kale Salad  to our grain-filled salads like our Greek Quinoa Salad, this Balsamic Glazed Chicken on Spinach salad makes a heartier meal thanks to the 21 grams of protein!

Berry Avocado Salad w/ Yogurt Cilantro Dressing

Serves 1

Ingredients:

Salad:

1 c. arugula

2 large strawberries, sliced

¼ c. blueberries

¼ avocado, cubed

2 t. almonds, sliced

Dressing:

2 T. nonfat plain Greek yogurt

½ t. honey

2 T. cilantro, finely chopped

2 T. lime juice

Directions:

Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 Degrees.

In a small bowl, use a fork to whisk together yogurt, honey, cilantro, and lime juice. Mix until the consistency is even and liquid- like. (If dressing is too thick to pour, add more lime juice)

Set the dressing aside. Place almonds on tin foil and put them in the toaster oven or oven on 350 degrees for about 4 minutes or until lightly brown. Meanwhile, place arugula, strawberries, blueberries, and avocado into a bowl. Once the almonds are done add those in too.

Finally, pour dressing over the top of the salad and toss it until the dressing is evenly distributed across the entire salad. Enjoy!
