An EASY, fresh, healthy and 7 ingredient vegan salad that is a little bit sweet, a little bit tangy and 100% YUMMY!
Yield: 6 servings
Suggested cooking tools: knife, measuring cup, measuring spoons, large bowl
16 ounce container of fresh strawberries, chopped
5 ounce bag of fresh spinach
1/4 cup slivered almonds
Tasty and Tangy Balsamic Dressing-
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup (or a sweetener of your choice like agave nectar)
Make the dressing: Whisk together all ingredients well (or blend in a blender, like a Magic Bullet, like I did). Set aside.
Toss the spinach, chopped strawberries, and almonds in a large bowl.
Serve the salad in bowls and top with the dressing (which may need another good shake or whisk if it’s been sitting for a bit).
Eat and enjoy!
