Berry Avocado Salad

salad03

When looking for a refreshing and light meal, this salad is always a crowd pleaser. It’s healthy, brightly colored, and as my husband says, “tastes like candy”.

This salad is easily adaptable and the add-on possibilities are endless. And it’s easy to make as much or as little as you want by controlling the portion of produce (for fodmap, go light on the avocado and dried cranberries). But the best part is the simple, 3-ingredient dressing that literally takes no time to make but tastes so good!
