My favorite part about salads is that they can be healthy, filling, and composed of fresh flavors all into one dish. Salty, sweet, nutty, fruity, and savory. The past few months I’ve been trying out many simple combination based on what I’ve eaten at restaurants and what I have in my fridge. I’ve had most of them for lunch with a side of toasted Spelt Bread with butter, or as a side salad with dinner. We also tend to use only baby spinach to get the additional iron, but feel free to mix it up with any fresh spring mix.
As far as salad dressings go, recently I’ve been using a simple mix composed of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and sugar. Simple, healthy, yet tastes perfect with many different salads! You can add any other dressing if you wish, but this by far is my favorite all-time salad dressing to use.
