Triple Berry Summer Salad (AIP, Paleo)

by | Jun 29, 2021

Triple Berry Summer Salad is the perfect salad recipe for the summer! Packed with three types of berries, avocado, red onion, optional crunchy walnuts, all coated in a creamy balsamic dressing. This salad is the perfect way to take advantage of the fresh berry season! AIP, paleo, low-carb & plant-based.

Triple berry salad and I go way back to the days when I would travel to Florida with my dad and step-mom, and we’d enjoy lunch and drinks at our go-to poolside restaurant. Not a lunch passed where I didn’t make sweet love to a delicious triple berry salad with salmon or chicken.

Since my favourite salad is a plane ride away, I decided to not only re-create it, but also modify it slightly to make it AIP, paleo & plant-based friendly. So now you and I can enjoy this healthy salad at home, any time!

This simple and fresh summer salad makes for a delicious meal with the addition of meat or fish (my favourites are chicken and salmon). You can also serve this salad as a lighter lunch option or at the beginning or end of a meal.

What makes this Triple Berry Summer Salad so great …

  • It’s packed with antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables.
  • You can use whichever berries you desire or whatever you have on hand. Also, no need to use three varieties, one or two will work too.
  • It’s dairy free, but still creamy and delicious thanks to avocado, which is loaded with healthy fats and fiber.
  • If you’re following an AIP diet, this recipe can be easily modified by omitting nuts and black pepper. If you want added crunch, try crushed toasted coconut chips, tiger nuts or bee pollen.
  • You can dress this salad however you like. My creamy balsamic dressing is delicious, but feel free to keep it simple with just olive oil & balsamic vinegar. A homemade raspberry vinaigrette or poppy seed dressing would work great as well.
  • Simply add chicken, salmon or another protein to make it an easy and complete meal.
