Good For You Friday: Rainbow Superfood Salad

FullSizeRender 2

Happy Friday!  I’m dreaming of Spring lately, and it reminded me of my favorite, go-to salad.  It’s nutritious, tasty, satisfying, and PRETTY. I make it for lunch all the time, and if I don’t have any ideas for dinner, I add a side of baked sweet potato or quinoa and a salmon filet and call it a day.

| Rainbow Superfood Salad | (serves 2)

  • 5-6 ounces mixed greens (I like Organic Girl Super Greens)
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, roughly diced
  • 1 6.5 ounce package of Love Beets, any variety, quartered
  • 5 ounces grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 2 handfuls shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped


  • 2 tablespoons cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons good quality maple syrup
  • salt
  • pepper

By the way, how cute is this wooden pineapple bowl from Open Door Shop??  It’s the perfect size for a salad, and I’m so obsessed that I bought a whole set.  It is hand-crafted in Hawaii from solid Acacia wood, which is fast-growing, sustainably harvested and non-endangered.  Win-win!

I hope you have a great weekend!
