Goodbye Summer Salad

Gonna be honest: I created this summer salad recipe right at the beginning of the summer months! But since I never got around to writing it up, I figure now is a good time before berries are no longer in season. Consider this salad a goodbye ode to summer.


This salad is a meal base and is made complete with a protein source, like grilled chicken slices or chickpeas!

For salads, I sometimes make my own dressing. Like anyone else, there are days during which I feel extra lazy and a good bottle of store-bought dressing works just fine. This salad goes perfectly with any balsamic dressing, whether homemade or bottled!


  • 1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped strawberries
  • 1/3 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced
  • 2 tbsp chopped walnuts
  • 2 tbsp finely grated queso cotija*
  • Balsamic salad dressing of choice

*can substitute with another cheese, such as parmesan cheese


  1. Assemble all ingredients together.
  2. Top with as much salad dressing as you want and enjoy!

Recipe makes 1 large salad.
