Recipe Notes

How to change it up and make this salad your own

Add walnuts or pecans instead of the almonds. Or go all out and top with candied pecans or crispy roasted chickpeas. 

Add a small amount of mint for a more refreshing edge.

Try shredded coconut for a more tropical flavor.

Try switching out the strawberries and blueberries for raspberries and blackberries.

Make it a lunch by topping the salad with rotisserie chicken, shrimp or baked/fried fish.
