Hi beautiful friends!
This recipe for the BEST vegan summer salad is going to be your new go-to salad for the warmer months. It features fresh mixed greens, avocado, grilled peaches, figs, and more! Absolutely decadent, fresh, and filling yet light. I am into it!
This salad is 100% plant-based, gluten-free, oil-free, soy-free but it doesn’t lack any flavor.
I used the fresh organic spring mix + spinach for the BEST vegan summer salad from Josie’s Organics, an amazing all organic company that grows their produce in the fertile California Valley. I also used the Josie’s romaine in this recipe!
Their family farming business dates back to the 1920’s, when two young Swiss immigrants, Sebastian and Josie Braga decided to start growing beets, tomatoes, onions, hay and corn.
Today, three generations later, the organic family farming tradition is being kept alive! Josie’s Organics harvests over 25 varieties of USDA certified organic veggies.
I love their inspiring story and love supporting them by buying their produce.
If I see Josie’s Organics in the grocery store, I snatch it up real quick because it’s truly such fresh produce. You can find their produce at stores like Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Sprouts and many more.
Josie’s Organics doesn’t use any synthetic fertilizers or pesticides on their farms. This is so important!

Grilled Peaches: Three Method
- You can grill your peaches in a panini press like I did
- You can grill them on your outdoor backyard grill
- You can saute the peaches in a pan if you don’t have a grill or panini press to warm them a little or you don’t have to cook them at all!
The fresh ingredients in this recipe and the perfect combination of the sweetness from the grilled peaches and figs, the creaminess of the avocado, saltiness of the almonds and crunch from the lettuce comes together in harmony to make the BEST vegan summer salad.
The BEST Vegan Summer Salad is:
A lil salty
Oil-Free Balsamic Fig Vinaigrette (only three ingredients)
The dressing in this recipe makes it beyond delicious, it has balsamic vinegar, fig jam and whole grain mustard. The flavors work so well together and it has NO OIL! It’s low calorie yet so yummy and 100% plant-based.
Bring this to a brunch/lunch, make it for your family, bring it to your summer dinner barbecue, eat it poolside, you know the drill. This salad is an elevated version of a regular salad because it has so many goodies.
A simple way to please yourself and impress your guests is to make a salad they are not used to having but yet tastes so GOOD – this salad truly is a winner.
