Hint: make more dressing than required. Save it for later in the fridge. This homemade dressing will stay in the fridge for 4 days.
Easy Variations for Blueberry Spinach Salad
- Bacon - Need to add some animal protein? Try adding some Crispy Baked Bacon.
- Pumpkin Seeds or Sunflower Seeds - for that extra boost of protein.
- Dried Parsley - you can infuse a herby taste in your dressing with some dried parsley.
- Nut Free - Allergic to nuts? No worries. Skip any and all sorts of nuts from this recipe. It won't make much of a difference, since you already have avocados.
- Purple Basil - Want to make this healthier? Try adding some raw purple basil. Tastes absolutely delicious and is so good for your health.
- Sweetener - Some people might find the dressing too sour and bitter. So if you are someone who doesn't enjoy a sour dressing then feel free to incorporate any sweetener that you like. My choice would be a tablespoon of Pure Maple Syrup.
- Mint leaves - Feel free to play around with taste. Few mint leaves (chopped) would add a new dimension of taste to the salad.
- Red Onions - Got some red onions in hand? Throw them in. They add a great crunch to the salad.
- cucumber - make broccoli spinach cucumber salad with some sliced english cucumber.
Substitutions for this broccoli spinach avocado salad
- Blue Cheese - Substitute Crumbled feta cheese with blue cheese.
- Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese - Substitute Feta with freshly grated Parmesan Cheese.

- kale - replace spinach with kale and make kale broccoli blueberry salad.

You can roast broccoli if you want to. But, I suggest that you add them raw.
