Ingredients

  • 1 cup Broccoli florets chopped
  • 1 cup Blueberries
  • 1 large Fuji Apple diced
  • 1 cup chopped Red Cabbage
  • 2-3 cups Baby Spinach/Baby Kale Blend I used Taylor Farms
  • 1/8 cup dried cherries unsweetened
  • 4 tbsp Pine Nuts
  • 3/4 cup Plain Greek Yogurt I used Stonyfield
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 2 scallions minced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 tsp salt more to taste
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/8 tsp paprika

Instructions

  • Toss all of the salad ingredients (broccoli through pine nuts) in a bowl.
  • For the dressing: In a small jar with a tight fitting lid, combine buttermilk and greek yogurt. Using a small whisk, beat until fully incorporated. Add rest of the ingredients (scallions through paprika). Place lid on jar and shake until all seasonings are mixed in.
  • Toss 1/2 the dressing with the salad, and right before serving, drizzle some (or the rest) of the dressing on top. Taste and add more salt & pepper if needed.

Notes

Top Tips For Making Superfood Salad
  • Cut all of the ingredients into small, equal, bite-sized pieces. It makes eating the salad so easy to eat!
  • Add in additional fruits and veggies as you see fit to enhance or adjust the flavors to your liking. 
  • Drizzle the salad dressing on top right before serving the salad, so it doesn’t get mushy. 
  • For the dried fruit, make sure you choose a variety with no added sugar!
  • Make sure to adjust the salt and pepper for your tastes - I like adding a bit more salt to my salad since the veggies are raw and don't have any other seasoning!
  • Buy organic if you can, especially for the dirty dozen, to avoid pesticides.
  • If you want to save some of the salad for leftovers later, put some aside and store it in a separate container than the salad dressing. Toss with the dressing right before you serve!
