This spinach salad tastes amazing! Spinach is an extremely nutrient-dense food, so you’ll be fueling up on important vitamins and minerals as well as healthy fibre. The recipe calls for raspberry vinegar, which is a flavorful and refreshing alternative to traditional, oily dressing. The fruit and nuts add flavor, fibre and healthy fat.
Here’s what you need:
8 cups cleaned spinach leaves
3 oranges, peeled, sliced and quartered
2 cucumbers, peeled sliced and quartered
1/8 cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
1/8 cup sunflower seeds
2 Tablespoons poppy seeds
1 cup strawberries, sliced or whole raspberries
1/2 cup white balsamic raspberry blush vinegar
- Combined the spinach, oranges, cucumbers, macadamia nuts, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds and strawberries in a bowl.
- Add the vinegar and toss well.
