Chopped Summer Salad with Honey Lime Vinaigrette

by | Salads

Just like everyone else I’ve been doing a lot more cooking while we’ve been at home. I created this chopped summer salad with honey lime vinaigrette a few weeks ago and thought you might enjoy it, too!

I’ve always told my girls that we should eat the rainbow at most every meal and this salad meets that requirement! I chose each of these ingredients because they represent the best of summer to me. I love adding berries to salads for the sweetness they add.

I used spinach as our base but you can use any green that you would like. simply give it a rough chop so it is in bite-size pieces.
