We love mixed greens because they are packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants! Avocados are another great addition because they are full of healthy fats and therefore great to enjoy on low carb days! Avocados are packed with great nutrients such as potassium, vitamin K and folate as well. They are also full of fiber and have even been shown to help skin and hair health! This is a great salad to bring to any summer BBQ and the best part is, it’s healthy and delicious!
