Superfood Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing

Feel great with this miracle worker.

If you celebrate Easter, there may be a brunch involved in which this delicious superfood salad will make a gorgeous centerpiece. You’re all aware of my love for a majorly loaded salad and I can assure you that this salad has a little something for everyone – it’s earthy, creamy, sweet and tangy. You could easily serve alongside salmon and a crowd-pleasing cocktail if you’d like.

Ultra-healthy and flavorful.

Piled high with kale, mango, berries, farro (or quinoa), avocado, walnuts, chia seeds and goat cheese this salad is chock full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that will have you feeling superhuman. The best thing about this salad is that it is very flexible in terms of ingredients. You can easily substitute different fruits, grains, greens, nuts and cheese to suit your personal taste. Don’t like mango? Try pineapple. Can’t stand kale? Mixed greens. No-go on the goat cheese? Use feta.

Hop to it!
