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!
