The Perfect Summer Side Dish

Nothing screams summer more than a salad with fresh greens, berries, and a light vinaigrette with crunchy toppings! Whether you're hosting a small get together or making a nice dinner for your family, this salad is the perfect addition to your summer bbq's.

Here at LivBar we love a good side salad - and this is just that! We topped a big bed of mixed greens and spinach with fresh blueberries, strawberries, raw walnuts, and hemp seeds. However, there's a not-so-secret ingredient: a Blueberry Vanilla Kale LivBar. We know it may sound interesting, but trust us, it's a salad game changer.

We love this salad because it is packed with a ton of nutrients that help keep you full. There are antioxidants from the blueberries and strawberries, healthy omegas from the walnuts, and a good source of fiber and added protein from the hemp seeds. The combination of these ingredients with our homemade Honey Mustard Vinaigrette plus a Blueberry Vanilla Kale LivBar is top notch. The best part is you can customize this recipe and use whatever toppings and LivBar flavor you want! We would recommend using the Raspberry Kale Maca LivBar as well.
