This Spinach Blackberry Salad is truly delicious, healthy, and prepared in just minutes! The BEST sweet lemon poppyseed dressing over fresh berries and pecans sitting atop a bed of spinach.
I am a snacker. I may have mentioned this tidbit about me here and there, but for reals, I can snack all day and go through the day without an actual meal. Pass me the Wonderful Almonds and leave me alone with ’em… Then, see what happens in 5 minutes.
Thus, when our days are filled with outside play, tanning, or just jumping in the pool, my snack obsession is ON! And it’s totally A-OK because who brings a meal to the pool?! Right. Not me.
But, you know what’s totally cool? I don’t do junk snacks. No siree! I am a fruits and nuts girl. That’s why when we go to the beach, or to the pool, I just lug a beach bag filled with some of my favorites, such as everything Wonderful Brands has to offer – Wonderful Pistachios, Wonderful Almond Accents, and of course that incredible POM Wonderful Juice!
Wonderful Brands is the fastest-growing brand in America’s produce aisles and it has become a trusted household name for delicious nuts and fruits – from pistachios to pomegranates. Did you know that 30 Wonderful Pistachios are only 100 calories?! That makes Wonderful Pistachios a delicious, smart snack, and a nutrient-rich alternative to “junk” snacks.
Also, those Wonderful Almond Accents are SO! GOOD! I have not had a salad without them in the past 2 or 3 months. I add them to every salad that I make, including this Spinach Blackberry Salad topped with a handful of the Sweet Roasted Pomegranate Almond Accents and a drizzle of Lemon Poppyseed Dressing. Amazing!
To add, just an FYI, for those of you who are watching your calories or are conscious about sodium, switching from seasoned croutons to flavorful Wonderful Almond Accents is a pretty good option. AND at 40 calories per serving, I usually double up and make it a Saladbration!
Wanna have a Saladbration of your own?! It must be your lucky day because now you can! MAKE THY SALAD! You will love this fantastic Spinach Blackberry Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing.
