Avocado Fruit Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette

This healthy salad takes just a few minutes to prepare. It is full of healthy ingredients and tastes light and bright. I whipped up a cranberry vinaigrette for it, but it really doesn’t need a dressing. The fruit is juicy enough.

For convenience, I used a spring mix in a bag for the lettuce. However, you can omit the lettuce if you’re not a fan. It really has enough flavors and textures going out without the lettuce. Alternatively, you can drizzle mint dressingavocado lime dressing, balsamic reduction, or date syrup over it. Both pair wonderfully with the salad.

This makes a great lunch salad. Furthermore, you can add chicken or shrimp, crusty bread, and a glass of your favorite wine. It’s hearty enough for dinner. Therefore, you won’t raid the fridge at 2 o’clock.😉

Healthy

Avocados are nutrient-dense. They have 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K, and folic acid. Also, avocados contain monosaturated and polyunsaturated fats or ‘good’ heart-healthy fats.

Fill free to customize the salad to your liking or with fruit in season and available in your area.

Instead of blue cheese, you can also use feta cheese or goat cheese.
