Summer Berry Salad Lemon Chia Dressing (5 of 8)


Summer Berry Salad with Lemon Chia Dressing

This colorful and refreshing salad is perfect for summer afternoons and evenings. Fresh, seasonal berries offer up sweet and juicy flavor, while also providing a concentrated source of beneficial antioxidants and phytonutrients. Chia seeds provide energy in the form of healthy fats (including anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids) and plant-based protein. Serve this salad as a starter, side dish, or light summer meal. It’s also great for parties!
