I know you’re all looking for healthy lunch ideas this summer…

Well, look no further because this broccoli blueberry salad recipe is going to rock your world.


This little salad here – if we can call it that with the abundance of veggies and fruits – is ridiculous fresh and delish. It tastes like a big bowl of summer… minus the whole sand in your mouth thing.

It’s crunchy and sweet and salty without any added sugar.


Seriously – can you see how beautiful this salad looks? It’s the main reason why I eat so many darn salads in the summer… they all look like this and they’re too hard to resist.

Plus, I just crave salads in the warmer weather.

Not in the winter, that’s for darn sure.


And there’s something about those little blueberries that make this dish so naturally sweet and flavorful that I just wanna pop the whole pint in my mouth. Well, okay. Not really. But I do have to stop myself from popping all these ingredients in my mouth while making this dish.


Possibly the one thing missing from this bowl of goodness is a nice ripe avocado but you can always whip one into a blender with sea salt and pepper and some soaked cashews for a creamy dressing that will totally rock YOUR world.

I kid you not.

Try it.

You’ll never ever got back to bottled salad dressings ever again.


I’ll let you decide.
