Simple Summer Salad Recipe

My summer menu always includes an assortment of salads. There are not many healthy food options as refreshing as handmade salads (aside from frozen-banana ice cream, mmm), as far as I’m concerned. To keep things exciting, I challenge myself to try different ingredients.

In June, I shared an easy, four-ingredient salad dressing and today, I’m back with a simple, fruit-based recipe that includes only six ingredients. This salad is no-fuss, and ideal for a potluck or picnic menu.

Watch the video below for more information.


I used approximately: 1/4 cup of cucumbers, 1/4 cup of blueberries, 1/4 cup of strawberries, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of cilantro, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, and a drop of vanilla extract. When using these increments, the dish should serve one-two people.

*Coconut oil solidifies in certain temperatures; if you let the dish chill, don’t be creeped by the white chunks. Once the salad warms up, the oil will melt down.

What are your favorite things to eat during the hot summer months?
