This Avocado Salad recipe is a Panera copycat recipe and is one of my favorite salads. Salad greens topped with berries, chopped pecans, and Feta cheese, then topped with a delightful blueberry vinaigrette. This single serving salad is easy to make and can be ready in minutes!
If you’ve visited a Panera restaurant recently, then you might be familiar with their Very Berry Avocado Salad. It’s refreshing and light and I order it just about every time I visit. Although Panera is popular in the United States, this type of avocado salad is one you might find in a restaurant anywhere. The ingredients in this avocado salad are simple and fresh and the salad is filled with flavor.
My avocado salad recipe is slightly different from Panera’s. This salad begins with a plate of greens and is topped with chopped avocados, blueberries, strawberries, cheese, and pecans. Instead of using a poppyseed dressing, I make up a quick batch of blueberry vinaigrette which has quickly become my new favorite salad dressing to use on almost all of my salads.
You can use the traditional Poppyseed dressing instead of the blueberry vinaigrette if you would prefer, and you can find my small batch Poppyseed Dressing recipe HERE.
This Avocado Salad is so easy to put together. Simply top baby greens with diced avocado, blueberries, chopped strawberries, pecans, a little Feta cheese and drizzle with the fabulous blueberry vinaigrette.
Salad Dressing Recipe
For this particular avocado salad, I made a Blueberry Vinaigrette and it was delightful.
Simply add 1/4 cup of blueberries, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of honey, and 3 tablespoons of olive oil to a blender and process until smooth. This will make 1/4 cup of dressing.
With this simple salad, you can easily add a protein of your choice. Try any one of these…
- Add cooked, diced chicken to make an Avocado Chicken Salad
- Crumble a hard boiled egg over the salad and create an Avocado Egg Salad
- Add canned tuna for an Avocado Tuna Salad
