3 Day Refresh – Spinach Salad


Last nights dinner! Hubby and I both loved this recipe and we plan to continue using this dressing on our other salads (we’re big into salads in the summer). I had a serving of veggies + a serving of fat from my afternoon snack left, so it was tossed in too (1/2 cup extra cucumber + avocado were added – not in the recipe quantity below).

Spinach Salad

(serves 2)

4 cups baby spinach or salad greens

1 medium cucumber, chopped

1 medium red bell pepper, sliced (we used orange, for some reason two stores here had zero red bell peppers)

1/2 cup sprouts (like radish, alfalfa, or broccoli) (I chose broccoli, we love it!)

1 medium tomato chopped (we had grape tomatoes, I went a lil overboard with them)

1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

2 tsp raw pumpkin or sunflower seeds (we did a lil of each)

Combine greens, cucumber, bell pepper, sprouts, tomato, olive oil, and lemon juice in a large bowl; toss gently to blend. Top with seeds.

Nom 😋
