Powered Spinach Salad with Light Dressing

salad

There’s nothing like a fresh salad to give our bodies a boost, while providing a break from the fatty, heavy foods that we’re typically used to. This salad is fresh, light and delicious, as it’s perfectly flavoured with a combination of salt and sweetness.

Lately, my meals have been consisting of a lot of heavy foods, which is unlike my usual eating habits. So, to start things off right today, I decided to make a healthy lunch that consists of a spinach salad, made with a creamy dressing. This salad is packed with protein, so it’s surprisingly filling and perfect for a light lunch. Hemp seeds add great power to any salad, as they are filled with protein and amino acids. Just one tablespoon is known to have about 5g of protein, which is higher than the amount in almonds. Get into the habit of sprinkling hemp seeds over every salad for added protein and fatty acids.

Salad Ingredients:
  • Handful of organic spinach leaves
  • 2 strawberries, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1.5 tablespoons Macedonian feta cheese, crumbled (can use goat cheese).
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds
  • 2 tablespoons walnuts
Dressing:
  • 1 tablespoon plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Black pepper
  • Pinch of salt.
Directions:
Combine all dressing ingredients in a small blender. Blend until completely mixed. Pour dressing over salad and enjoy.

Note: This recipe is meant to serve one person. Double or tripple the ingredients to serve more.
