The dressing for this salad is a light lime honey poppyseed dressing. But if you look too closely at my photos you may notice the dressing in these photos doesn’t have poppy seeds in it. Whoops!

When I was making this for my husband and I recently I ran out of poppy seeds, so I made the dressing without them. And I really wanted to share this salad with you guys, so I took the photos anyways! The dressing still turned out great, but I’d recommend using the poppy seeds :-).

I love the sweet and crunchy combinations in this salad from the almonds, apples and berries. I also love that it’s hearty enough that it will keep you full for lunch, but it works great as a side dish also. Hope you enjoy this Berry Almond Avocado Salad as much as we do!

  1. 5 stars
    This salad is AMAZING! I didn’t have avocado, but we did add some chicken. It is the perfect summer meal. Ok…anytime meal. Nom nom nom! And my husband hates onions, but he had no idea there were onions but in it (the dressing that is). Win for me because I love them!

  2. I didn’t have dijon mustard (used stone ground) or poppy seeds but it still came out delicious. A beautiful, hearty salad that does well for potlucks. Thank you!

  3. OMG! It is just too dangerous to read your blog!
    It look so yummmy…
    I will try to make it for my love.
