This is by far one of my favourite go-to salads. It is simple, delicious, and healthy! I usually make this to go with a nice blackened chicken breast, or any chicken breast with a nice spicy kick to it. I know a lot of people don’t like dates, but do not take them out of this salad! You will love it! And if you REALLY hate dates, you can replace them with figs!
For the salad:
-8 c mixed greens (arugula, spinach)
-1 c fresh dates, roughly chopped
-1/4 c sun dried tomatoes, chopped
-1 1/2 c black beans, rinsed
-1c feta cheese, crumbled
-1 whole avocado, diced
For the dressing:
-1/4c evoo + 1/4c fresh lime juice
-2 tbsp peanut butter
-1 tsp sugar
-1tbsp soy sauce
-1 clove garlic, minced
-1 tbsp fresh lime juice +zest
Take all of the dressing ingredients and add them to a bowl. whisk until emulsified or you can use a hand held immersion blender. Adjust to your taste. I don’t ever measure anything so this is just a basic guideline to follow for measurements!!
Mix all of your salad ingredients together in a bowl. Toss with the dressing. Serve!!
