Arugula Spinach Blueberry Feta Salad with Avocado and Chickpeas

Oh man, my life is so intense lately. I’m working my ass off. There’s so much going on right now. + It’s the end of school year. The last weeks of school are always the hardest. Every day there’s so much homework we must do and the studying. Squeezing in some cooking, cleaning, workouts, and family life… Gosh, I honestly don’t know how I am surviving all this. I am SO ready for summer!

My husband says that we are powered by all the superfoods we eat. And that’s SO true! Nutrient-packed meals are what’s keeps us fed and sane.

Blueberry Chia Smoothie and Berry Oatmeal Bars supercharges us in the morning. And every day I make sure we have a healthy family dinner on our table. No matter how busy I am, I still find time to prepare a meal that is loaded with all the healthy goodies we need. Especially now that we all are under so much stress.

Thankfully beautiful seasonal veggies and greens are now in full swing, and there is a variety of ways I can enhance family dinner and make it more nutritious and more balanced. Salads are the essential part of that healthy daily eating plan.

Arugula Beans Salad complements nicely Baked Chicken Parmesan. And Avocado Potato Salad is a full packed meal itself. Same as this mixed green, superfood charged Blueberry Feta Salad. It’s fresh, satisfying and just beautiful – rich in flavors and so many nutrients.

If you don’t eat salads daily, you should definitely start. Salads are the super-convenient way to eat more veggies daily. Not only that, salads are cool, crunchy, and fun to eat, with lots of textures, colors, and flavors.

We love having salads for dinner or lunch – even our kiddo loves salads! Picking fresh veggies with his fingers from the bowl makes this mommy very happy.

What’s great about salads is that it doesn’t have to be “just the greens and veggie” salad. When berry season starts, I like to include fruits in my salads too. Fruits give freshness and elevate the salads taste. Not to mention fruits supplement whole meal with many nutrients also. Adding fruit to salads is fun too.

To make this Blueberry Feta Salad I used all the FRESH ingredients that are now in season – young baby spinach, arugula, cherry tomatoes and beautiful antioxidant-rich blueberries.

Baby spinach leaves with its tender texture, and sweet taste paired so nicely with peppery arugula while sweet cherry tomatoes gave the salad unbelievable freshness. And then, there are these beautiful, plump blueberries sprinkled on top together with salty feta cheese. Just delicious.

With the added protein from chickpeas and heart-healthy, good fats from the avocado, this salad is transformed into a satisfying, healthy and absolutely delicious salad you can toss literally in no time.

To make the salad even more nutritious I added some microgreens – broccoli sprouts. You can totally skip these if you want to, BUT if you have a chance to get it from your store and implement in your meals – sandwiches, soups, and salads – DO IT. Microgreens are heart-healthy, cancer-fighting superfoods. + peppery tasting and great for salads.

I used simple lemon and olive oil dressing to season this salad.

Blueberry Feta Salad is …

  • Super simple, make-ahead salad.
  • Full of fibers that promote good digestion and weight loss.
  • Rich in healthy monounsaturated fats good for heart health.
  • Rich in vitamin C, vitamin A and essential minerals.
  • Rich in antioxidants that supports our immunity and promotes good health.
  • Perfect office lunch box meal.
  • Low-calorie, nutrient-dense, ALL NATURAL and FRESH!

This mixed greens salad with blueberries is the perfect salad for office lunchbox, upcoming potlucks, and picnics. It is vibrant, full of color and flavors. And I know that it will be a HIT wherever it goes.

Blueberry Feta Salad is more than a simple salad. It’s a well-balanced meal, packed with proteins, good heart-healthy fats and fibers. Not to mention ANTIOXIDANTS. It’s fresh, easy to make and glorious! Testies blueberry salad recipe you can imagine.

This salad I’m going to make over and over again. I hope you do, too!
