Berry Vinaigrette Spring Salad

spring berry salad

A bed of spinach overtop a bit of quinoa, roasted chickpeas, chopped berries, a lovely berry vinaigrette recipe (recipe below), and chopped avocado. Love this salad. It screams Spring.

Berry Vinaigrette (serves one; vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, soy-free)

  • 1/2 cup berries (fresh or frozen),
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed juice from an orange (or lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon stevia
  • 2 tablespoons water

Combine all the ingredients into a blender or food processor and puree until everything is smooth.

This dressing SO delicious.

I like using it to roast ALL my vegetables, make protein bars, coconut “peanut butter”, coconut cookies, its even used as a great hair conditioner and skin moisturizer. Oh man, this stuff is good!

I find some coconut oil products don’t leave behind the subtle sweet and delicious coconut flavour once you cook with it, but this is top notch.

Tropical Traditions is America’s source for coconut oil. Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is hand crafted in small batches by family producers, and it is the highest quality coconut oil they offer.

Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales, to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, and to read about all the advantages of buying coconut oil online.
