Hi everyone! Hope you are all having a great week so far. Today I wanted to share one of my favourite salads. This one is super simple and only has 4 ingredients! Quick & easy, my kind of salad. 😉
Spinach is crazy good for you. From improving your skin/hair to bettering your bone health, this little leafy green does it all! As for the yummies (see my other salad recipe for what a “yummy” is), this time I used avocado, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, and red onion. AKA the most delicious things! 😀
What’s in it:
- Feta Cheese
- Red Onion
- Cherry Tomatos
- Your favourite balsamic dressing
- OR a simple homemade balsamic (2 tbsp olive oil, 1.5 tbsp balsamic vinegar, squirt of Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and a drop of maple syrup)
Start by putting as much spinach as your heart desires in a bowl. Now take that beautifulll red onion and slice it up really thin. Add that in. Throw in your cherry tomatos, and chop up that avocado into large chunks and add that too. Hungry yet? 😛 Finally, add the best ingredient of all… FETA!
Surprise surprise, I love cheese. Haha. Keep in mind everything in moderation though. Your salad should be sprinkled with feta, not made of 90% feta (which if I am being real is what I want to do all the time… but, self-restraint friends.)
Finally add your favourite balsamic dressing, or use the recipe I put above! And that’s it! SO delicious and nutritious. Make sure to add some more protein (ie chicken) if you are having your salad as a meal.
Do you have a favourite homemade balsamic that you make? Let me know in the comments below, it is always nice to get new recipe tips! 😀
