Spring is in the air and I love being able to throw together a quick salad using whatever fresh fruits and veggies are on hand. You can mix up just about any combination of fruits to go on a salad. I typically stick with a balsamic vinegar and olive oil drizzle as a dressing since the creamy ones tend to be loaded with saturated fat and excess sugar and/or salt. Plus the light vinegar and olive oil allow you to really taste the mix of the fruits and veggies which should be the stars of the dish anyways.
Pear & Blueberry Salad
1 cup spinach or kale (or mix of both)
1 Bartlett pear chopped
½ cup blueberries
1 roma tomato sliced
Sprinkle of feta cheese (or omit if dairy free)
Sprinkle of sunflower seeds (~2 tbsp)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1tbsp aged balsamic vinegar
*(You can mix the vinegar and oil together to blend them before drizzling over salad if you prefer)
Layer the ingredients in that order in a salad bowl and enjoy!
