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.
See recipe box below for ingredient amounts and full recipe instructions.
- salad greens
- Feta cheese
See below for ways to use up any leftover ingredients.
Avocado Salad Dressing
Instead of using a poppyseed dressing, I make a blueberry vinaigrette instead. This easy to make dressing has quickly become my new favorite salad dressing to use on almost all of my salads. This small batch salad dressing recipe will yield approximately 1/4 cup.
- olive oil
- lemon juice
Feel free to use my poppyseed dressing instead of the blueberry vinaigrette if you’d like.
How To Make An Avocado Salad
