Mixed Greens Flower Salad with Primal Kitchen

With spring officially here and flowers in full bloom, add a few colorful blossoms to your seasonal salad for an edible arrangement as beautiful as your growing garden. Our mixed greens flower salad is a fresh flavor sensation of greens, edible flowers and delicious ingredient pairings of quinoa, avocado, golden raisins and fennel. Top it off by drizzling a homemade balsamic avocado oil vinaigrette made with Primal Kitchen® Extra Virgin Avocado Oil.

This vegetarian/vegan spring salad packs protein from quinoa and vitamin E and healthy fats from avocados and Extra Virgin Avocado Oil, among many other nutrients. While Primal Kitchen nourishes from within, our Southern California neighbors at OSEA Skincare add nutrients to your body with their vegan skincare line.
