This light, healthy avo, feta and nut salad is a real crowd pleaser and one of my favourite summer salad recipes. In fact, I often eat this for a protein-rich lunch. 

If you're following a vegan eating plan, simply swap out the feta for tofu or add more nuts and seeds and some lentils. 

Serves 4 as a main meal


For the dressing:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp vinegar of choice
  • 1 Tbsp honey / sweetener of choice
  • 2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 tsp garlic powder / crushed garlic
  • Salt and black pepper

For the salad:

  • 100g baby spinach / wild rocket
  • 2 avocado, cubed
  • 1 cup snap peas (mangé tout), halved
  • ½ cup sprouts
  • 1/3 cup feta
  • ½ cup pecans, broken up and toasted


  1. Place leaves in shallow, wide salad dish, followed by snap peas, avo, sprouts then pecans. Crumble the feta over the top.
  2. Whisk all dressing ingredients together, decant into a small jug and serve on the side with a spoon.
