This salad uses several of the best Spring detoxifying ingredients: spinach, strawberries, avocado, and onion. If you are ready to introduce a dairy into your diet, I suggest using Goat or goat feta cheese. Because of its protein content, goat cheese is easier on the digestive system.
6 cups fresh baby spinach
1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 avocado, diced (or you can double this to 2 avocados!)
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
half a small red onion, thinly sliced
Optional: 4 ounces crumbled goat cheese or goat feta cheese
poppyseed dressing (recipe below)
Poppyseed Dressing Ingredients:
1/2 cup avocado oil (or any oil, such as olive oil)
3 Tablespoons applecider vinegar
2 Tbsp honey (or to taste, I add less)
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
pinch of ground dry mustard (optional)
salt and pepper, to taste
To Make The Salad:
Toss all ingredients together with your desired amount of dressing until combined. Serve immediately.
To Make The Poppyseed Dressing:
Whisk all ingredients together until combined. I like to place ingredients in a mason jar, screw on the lid, and shake to combine!
