Fruity Spinach Salads
I enjoy fruity spinach salads and I love them for their versatility. There is no one way or one recipe to go about these lovely bowls of goodness.
I keep mixing and matching different ingredients and basically use whatever I have available on hand. Below are the suggested ingredients for you to try and enjoy this goodness!
Feel free to experiment with different fruits and nutty ingredients :)
Adding some pictures to show the salad's versatility & to serve as motivation!
Red or Green Apples (thinly sliced)
Choose one or two or more out of the following optional ingredients:
Oranges (seeds removed) – optional ingredient
Strawberries (cut in half or four) – optional ingredient
Pomegranates (seeds) – optional ingredient
Kiwis (thinly slices) – optional ingredient
Spinach* (cut in half or as desired)
* The fresher the spinach, the better your salad will be. Try growing some in a pot or in your garden. Here in Pakistan, I have been lucky to pluck fresh spinach leaves every morning from greeny-goodness-pots-of-gold :)
Dried cranberries (handful)
Walnuts / Almonds / Pecans / Pumpkin Seeds / whatever you prefer (handful)
Feta Cheese (super optional to add)
