Fresh Summer Salad

IMG_3272.JPG

This super simple and fresh summer salad is an easy go-to for those hot days of summer. It’s so easy to throw together but is super impressive! All you need is a few ingredients!

  • 1 Cucumber
  • Bag of Heirloom Tomatoes
  • 2-3 Cups of Spinach
  • 5-6 Basil Leaves
  • A couple of handfuls of microgreens
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1-2 TBSP of olive oil
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Alternatively, for the dressing, you can use a lemon infused olive oil

Steps:

Chop all veggies into small cubes

Add washed spinach, torn basil leaves, and handfuls of microgreens

Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice! That’s it, so fresh, simple and so tasty. I purchased all of these ingredients at my local farmers market, most are organic. There are so many health benefits to this salad and it’s super refreshing!

Great for a lazy weeknight dinner or an impressive BBQ potluck dish. You could add grilled chicken or, fish, which would go great with the lemon!

 

Enjoy!
