SuperFood SaladAre you looking for a delicious salad that you can serve as a dinner? This salad incorporates an abundance of superfoods, which makes it filling enough to serve as your next meal! It has a wonderful flavor and is very colorful! If you have never tried adding cooked quinoa to your salad you are in for a real treat! I have never tried canned salmon before this salad and I was pleased at how delicious canned salmon can be! If you don’t want to use the salmon you could substitute beans or lentils or ever cooked chicken. We will be enjoying this superfood salad all summer!superfood salad

 

Superfood Salad

 

Ingredients:

 

Dressing:

 

6 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 tsp maple syrup

1 clove garlic, minced

½ tsp Dijon mustard

½ tsp sea salt

Ground pepper to taste

 

Salad:

 

9 cups of baby spinach leaves or other greens

2 cups finely chopped red cabbage

1 ½ cups cooked quinoa

1 cup blueberries

1 cup sprouts, broccoli or other

¼ cup unsalted Brazil nuts

1 6-7 oz can of wild salmon, preferably without bones

1 large avocado, peeled, pitted and cubedsuperfood salad

 

Prepare your dressing in a jar and shake to combine all dressing ingredients.

 

Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss to coat with the dressing. If you are making the salad several hours before dinner I would keep it chilled in the refrigerator and add the dressing just before serving.superfood salad

 

I love when I can find a meal that can be put together earlier in the day. When you get busy during the rest of the day it’s nice to know you have a refreshing salad waiting for you in the refrigerator. This superfood salad is a real winner! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!superfood salad

Your salad looks awesome! I love adding blueberries to my salads.

Judee,
I too love to add blueberries especially now that they are ripe on our own bushes! 🙂

What lovely flavours and textures in this satisfying summer salad, Nancy! I really like that you can use canned salmon, and the addition of the blueberries and brazil nuts is perfect. All the ingredients are nutrient dense and delicious too. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Hearth and Soul. Sharing on the H&S Facebook page later today. Hope to ‘see’ you at the party when we return from summer break on Monday 7th August.
