They’re also hit or miss taste-wise.
I have a go-to salad. It’s the one I posted in my post on homemade salad dressings. For the past year and a half, I make this salad and my balsamic salad dressing (which I will love and continue to make for the rest of my life) each and every time that I want to fill up on some leafy greens and feel good about myself.
But I figured it’s time to branch out.
Time to try a new salad.
Time to live a little.
So I bypassed the spinach at the store and grabbed some good old fashioned Spring Mix. I added my favorite salad topping, cherry tomatoes (maybe my all-time favorite vegetable? They definitely rank up there), and decided to get a little adventurous with a few additional topics.
Nothing too out-there. Just fresh mozzarella and an avocado.
Then I topped it all off with my beloved homemade balsamic vinaigrette.
I was impressed with the results.
So impressed that I felt like I needed to share this award-winning combination with you all.
So here it is:
My Avocado Balsamic Salad
1 bowl of spring mix
1 cup of cherry tomatoes (or less, if you aren’t as tomato-obsessed as I am), sliced in half
1 ounce of fresh mozzarella, cut into bite-sized chunks
1 avocado, also cut into bite-sized chunks
My Balsamic Dressing, the second dressing recipe on this link
Mix the ingredients in a bowl (salads are pretty self-explanatory)
