where to start? delicious kale and shredded brussels sprouts massaged in avocado oil paired with delicious vegan feta, red onions, and chickpeas – this salad has every good thing you need!

i incorporated strawberries and pomegranate arils to give the salad summer freshness that’s perfect for hot days spent in the sun.

Good to Glow Fresh Summer Salad salad is seriously perfect for a quick pick-me-up or even a party!

i think it would be great to pack and bring with you if you’re someone who enjoys going on picnics too!

the walnuts give it a delicious crunch for some extra texture. the red onion gives this salad a bit of a bite combined with the saltiness of the vegan feta – yum!

Good to Glow Fresh Summer Salad isn’t complete without a tasty dressing made with some toasted sesame oil, rice vinegar, and balsamic glaze which gives it a slight tanginess.

this dressing pairs nicely with the salad’s ingredients! it may seem like a rather odd combination, but believe me, it works beyond well :).
