Salads are one thing that will never get old for me. I eat them throughout the year and for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sometimes they are loaded with a bunch of veggies, fruit, healthy fats, and protein, while other times it is whatever I can find in the fridge over some greens. I grew to love them in college when we could build our own in the all-you-can-eat dining halls and love never faded. #bombasssalad
This berry avocado salad super easy to throw together and would be a great side dish to just about any meal. You could also throw some protein on it and make it a full meal. But the real star of the show is the dressing – a creamy matcha dressing in fact.
If you are unfamiliar with matcha, it is just ground up green tea leaves. It has 137 times more antioxidants than regularly brewed green tea while packing int the health benefits – it is anti-inflammatory, protects against cancer, stimulates metabolism, lowers cholesterol, calms the body, and helps detoxify among a bunch of other things. Pretty much a superstar.
If you have followed me for awhile, you know I’m a huge fan of dressing, dips, sauces, and spreads. It makes eating so much more fun and enjoyable. So that’s exactly what I did with this salad. To get the creamy consistency I blended up some cashews (my go-to) with matcha and a few other ingredients. It makes the perfect pairing for the berries and avocado. Michael was a huge fan of it as well and was putting it on most of his meals. So even if you don’t want to make the salad, make the dressing and dip away!
