Spinach & Arugula Salad with the Works for Mommy and Daddy

My mother-in-law made this salad the last time she was visiting us, and it was SO yummy. There's a lot of unexpected flavors that work really well together and make every bite a little sweet and a little salty. This is a great side salad, or lunch. You can add chicken or salmon to this salad to make it a full meal. I say this salad is for Mommy and Daddy, but you can serve the toppings (avocado, berries, olives, cheese, apples, chicken or salmon) cut up into bite size pieces for your little one 10+ months.

Here's what you need:
1 package organic baby spinach & arugula salad
2 avocados diced
1 can sliced black olives
1 to 2 organic apples diced
3/4 cup dried berry mix (the one I used had blueberries, cranberries, cherries and plums)
1 to 2 handfuls crumbled feta cheese
1 handful sliced almonds
2 tbsp light balsamic vinaigrette

Mix all ingredients together drizzle with dressing and toss to coat. If you're serving the toppings to your little one take out his/her portion before you add almonds or dressing. Enjoy!
