Strawberry-Blueberry Salad with Poppyseed Dressing

salad with strawberries and blueberries

In honor of the upcoming holiday, I thought I’d share a super-easy salad recipe that I’ve been loving this summer.

It just so happens to be red, white & blue…perfect for 4th of July parties and BBQ’s.

It works great as a side dish or as a main course when topped with a bit of grilled chicken.

(adjust measurements based on desired serving size)

  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 6 strawberries, sliced
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped
  • 1/4 cup, cooked quinoa

Toss all ingredients and top with an all-natural poppyseed dressing (I like Brianna’s) or make your own using this simple, vegan poppyseed dressing recipe.
