Avocado Raspberry Salad. Light and refreshing salad. Easy, 10-minute (max) recipe.
Avocado Raspberry Salad
Hi. It's Lois in the kitchen at Recipe Idea Shop, talking about a refreshing, light spinach salad with raspberries and avocados that is comfort food at our house. Avocados are a delicious addition to a salad. I combine them with fruit, such as raspberries, blueberries or strawberries, sliced green onions and toasted walnuts as a topping for baby spinach salad. Or add them to a typical house salad of romaine, cucumbers and tomatoes. When I add fruit to the salad, I like poppyseed dressing, but any dressing you like will do.
This salad is a light addition to a meal, but it adds good fat, fruit and iron-rich spinach to your diet. My favorite Poppyseed Dressing is Brianna's Poppy Seed Dressing (affiliate link). It's vegan and totally amazing over a salad with fruit!
What You Need
You'll need a knife for peeling and slicing or cubing the avocado, a colander to drain your rinsed raspberries, a salad spinner to spin dry your spinach, and a salad bowl. Since picnic time is rolling around, I suggest you buy a fun salad bowl.
