Light and simple spinach salad

img_9464

I was wanting a super light, healthy and tasty wintertime salad. This is what I came up with while scrambling around at Superstore today with a five year old and a 10 month old. You could definitely dress it up a bit more but I actually am really digging the simplicity of these few ingredients.


Ingredients

1-2 cups of Spinach

1-2 Avocados

1/4 cup of Mixed nuts (cashews, pecans, walnuts, almonds – can be raw or salted, whatever you prefer).

2 tsp of Nutritional Yeast

1 Tablespoon of Dijon Mustard

3 tbsp of Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Pomegranate Seeds of one pomegranate

Pinch of Salt & Pepper

1 Tbsp of Maple Syrup

Dressing

In a small bowl combine about 3 tbsp of olive oil with 2 tsp of nutritional yeast, 1 tbsp of dijon mustard and 1 tbsp of maple syrup. Whisk together. Add salt & pepper to taste. Try a sample and if you prefer a sweeter dressing add more syrup or saltier add more salt or dijon accordingly. I always play with the ingredient amounts.


On a medium-sized plate gently scatter all ingredients and drizzle with the dressing.

Enjoy!
