How to Make Healthy Summer Salad Recipes

Making this summer salad healthy was easy, with healthy ingredients. But keeping the salad crisp was another thing.

With this salad, if we add all the ingredients to a bowl and toss, it will fall apart… so be sure to read the directions so that doesn’t happen!

Special Note: If you add everything to the big bowl and toss, the cheese and avocados will fall apart, and the mango will get mushy. We tested several ways, and this yielded the best texture.

How to Make Healthy Summer Salads:

  1. In a small bowl or jar combine the balsamic vinegar, mustard, salt, pomegranate juice, and olive oil.
  2. Whisk well, or if using a jar, seal and shake well.
  3. Add the arugula to a large bowl, drizzle over 1/2 of the dressing.
  4. Toss to coat with salad dressing, then divide the arugula between 4 plates or bowls.
  5. Top each salad with avocado, mango, pecans, blue cheese, and pomegranate seeds.
  6. Drizzle over the remaining dressing and serve.
