Tis the Salad Season!

Summer is the perfect time to create wonderful, colorful, seasonal salads! There are so many fantastic seasonal vegetables available this time of year. Add your favorite veggies, berries, lean protein source, and a healthy fat-filled salad dressing for a nutrient-dense salad sensation!

Here is just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing:


lettuce options: spinach, baby kale, red, green, and purple lettuce, arugula, andendive

other veggies: cucumber, tomato, carrots, red onion, sweet peppers, zucchini, and radish


raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries

Lean Protein: grilled fish like wild-caught salmon or tuna, wild-caught shrimp, grilled chicken or turkey, pork tenderloin, and lean steak

Healthy Fats: kalamataolives, raw nuts, and seeds (like walnuts, almonds, or cashews, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds) cottage cheese, and grated or shredded parmesancheese

Salad dressing idea:

My favorite salad dressing is a simple red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil blend (drizzle salad with a bit of each and add a dash of Himalayansea salt to taste).
