Berry Avocado Salad with Raspberry Poppyseed Dressing

 Today I hung out with my super cute girlfriend who some of you might know as the Recipe Critic and nothing is better than catching up with friends and having a babysitter for Adie so you can totally get in some girl time! Broke my heart though when she bawled when she got picked up, I do not know how I am going to make it through preschool! Nothing brings people together more than food does and this refreshing salad was exactly what I needed on a fun afternoon catching up! The combination of fresh berries and the crunch from the pine nuts had me bite after bite in heaven! Not to mention the perfect light dressing that doesn't weigh down your salad was incredibly refreshing and a must for Spring and your next girl's day! Plus it's pink and with Mother's Day coming up she will absolutely love it!

Berry Avocado Salad with Raspberry Poppyseed Dressing

6 oz. baby spinach
1/2 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
1/2 cup of blueberries
1/2 blackberries
1/2 cup of raspberries
2 large avocados
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup feta cheese

Creamy Poppyseed Dressing:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup 2% milk
3 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons cider vinegar
2 teaspoons poppyseeds
1/2 cup raspberries

1. In a large salad bowl, combine spinach, berries, avocados, pine nuts and feta cheese.
2. In a small bowl, blend together the mayonnaise, milk, sugar, cider vinegar, poppyseeds and raspberries. 
Pour half over the salad and toss to coat. Add more dressing if needed. 
3. Serve immediately and garnish with with more feta cheese and pine nuts if desired and enjoy!

You guys have to let me know what you thought of this salad! I cannot wait for you to try it and many more fun recipes to try with your favorites! We are looking forward to baby brother's arrival that Adie still insists on calling him puppy which I think is the cutest thing ever! She still runs up and smacks my belly for his daily high five and then moments later she's giving him kisses and my heart melts! I am still in a little bit of denial about having another baby and he will be here like soon! I just can't believe we will be a little family of four before summer and oh the fun that is about to be had!
