Spinach can be one of those polarizing greens (or at least in my head… I can saute a full bag of spinach, and it wilts into just three bites!). Jokes aside, I created a fun spinach salad for you: my Superfood Spinach Salad.
Superfoods are considered “super” because they are chock-full of nutrients and antioxidants. Superfoods can also have healthy fats and fiber. It’s sorta the “bang for your buck” ingredient in terms of health! Here, I toss spinach with roasted sunflower seeds, steamed quinoa, creamy avocado, and fresh blueberries. I also have slices of bell pepper for a pop of color. The vinaigrette s a simple 1:1 mixture of heart-healthy extra virgin olive oil and sweet balsamic vinegar. Together, these ingredients make a hearty, crunchy, refreshing salad.
You can definitely make this salad a few hours ahead of serving, and if you do so I recommend cutting the avocado just before eating to maintain its color. Enjoy!!
