Berrylicious Summer Salad


Tired of making the same salads for dinner or lunch? Sometimes it’s easy to get stuck in a rut with the usual salads. Even when you go to restaurants, it seems like the salads get repetitive. Wedge salad, cobb salad, caesar salad, pear and arugula pecans with goat cheese, spinach and bacon….But don’t fret, now you can make your own new salad which can not only wow your family but also your friends. This is one healthy and extremely tasty salad that can be served right away or stored and be eaten the next day. I call this berrylicious salad because it has cranberries in it and a dressing made from raspberry jam:)

Berrylicious Summer Salad

Serves: 2           Prep Time: 10 mins


2 cups sliced persian cucumbers

1 cup garbanzo beans

3 cups hand torn roasted chicken (store bought, remember to discard the skin)

1 cup sliced cherry tomatoes

1/2 cup corn

1/4 cup minced green onions

Raspberry Balsamic Dressing

3 tablespoon raspberry jam

3 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon agave

4 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper


1. Place all your salad components in a large bowl

2. Whisk your ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl and taste. Season with more salt if you need it or agave if you like it sweeter

3. Pour the dressing on top of the salad and toss

This is one incredibly tasty salad! You'll definitely want to add this into your salad rotation. It's also perfect for this summer.
