Seasonal Summer Salad

For a quick and easy seasonal dinner, toss together a fresh salad chock-full of good-for-you ingredients. This salad recipe shines the spotlight on garden-fresh veggies, fruits, nuts and cheese for a salad that's light yet satisfying.  Less than 400 calories and full of protein, offers options for a tasty and healthy main dish that's loaded with nutrition.


  • Mixed tender leafy greens
  • Cucumber thinly sliced
  • Walnuts
  • Blueberries 
  • Blood orange slices
  • Diced peaches
  • Fresh blueberries
  • Tomato wedges
  • Hemp Seeds
  • Cheese of your choice
  • Purple grape

Ingredient amounts vary depending on the amount you want - a plate or a family size bowl.
Just mix it up and enjoy.
Dressing is whatever you prefer.  I like a light Raspberry Vinaigrette or Light Ranch.
