  • 4-5 cups mixed greens such as spinach, arugula, romaine
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup sliced baby cucumbers
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1/2 cup feta or goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts
  • 1 sliced avocado
  • Chopped grilled chicken optional

For the balsamic dressing

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1-2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
  • Pinch of salt
  • Fresh cracked pepper


  1. In a mason jar or dressing shaker, combine all the balsamic dressing ingredients. Cover and shake vigorously until well combined. Alternatively, whisk all ingredients in a small bowl.

  2. Depending on how you are serving, arrange salad in one large bowl, or 4 individual portions. Start with greens, then layer on all of the toppings. Drizzle desired amount of balsamic dressing and enjoy!

  3. I love the addition of a grilled and sliced chicken breast, it really makes it a meal and adds another great texture to the salad.

Recipe Notes

What I love most about salad recipes like this...you really don't need to measure (except the dressing). Throw in however much of the toppings as you like. I prefer a salad that's packed with just as many goodies as greens.

I used the combination of spinach, arugula, and romaine in this salad. All great textures with different flavors that work great together.

For the dressing, I've made this balsamic before without the addition of Greek yogurt, but I love the creaminess it brings to the dressing, I personally prefer it this way.
