Sick of your regular salad….
Sometimes eating your regular romaine lettuce salad can become uninteresting overtime, it does not matter how many other items you add to it, they all taste the same. My summer salad is a great option, however, this one gives a different taste of a salad. This salad is made with spinach.
Did you know that spinach is low in fat and even lower in cholesterol? Spinach is high in niacin and zinc, as well as protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese. In other words, spinach is loaded with good nutrients for your entire body. Organic or homegrown spinach is the best!
6 cups spinach
6 grape tomatoes cut in half
3 Tbsp pistachios
1/2 Hass avocado diced
1 tsp olive oil
1/2- 1tsp tsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Add your spinach to the plate topped with diced tomatoes and avocados. Drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. To finish add your pistachios.
Viola your salad is served. As an added protein you can include 1/2 cup of garbanzo beans. For non-vegans; vegetarians broiled salmon, and for meat eaters grilled chicken breast.
