When my husband and I ended our juice fast we obviously had to start small with incorporating solid foods back in to our diet. This salad was our first ‘official’ meal at the end of day one of our first day on solid foods. Good. Night. Nurse. Talk about the best salad I’d ever tasted in my entire life! The ingredients are simple, healthy, FRESH, and pair wonderfully together. This has officially become my go-to salad for home and also to take to get togethers. What I love most is there isn’t a calorie loaded dressing that it’s drenched in. Being calorie conscious, I can definitely appreciate that. Most people think salad is the typical go-to for a healthy meal, but after drowning in fatty dressing it can often times (if you are not careful) be the worst decision. You will LOVE this salad. Already in the last three weeks I’ve made it close to a dozen times!
The beauty of this, is that you can make as much or as little as you want/need. I’ll give you the ingredients, and depending on how many you will be serving you can determine how much of everything you want!
My New Favorite Salad
I can assure you, this salad will quickly become one of your favorites!
- 2 cups Spinach
- 1 Avocado
- 1/2 cup Grape tomatoes
- 1/4 cupMozzarella
- 1 Lemon
- Fresh cracked ground pepper & sea salt
- Wash spinach (if not pre-washed).
- Combine spinach, cubed avocado, tomatoes, and cubed Mozzarella.
- *Freshly squeeze lemon and drizzle as much or as little over the entire salad. Finish it off with fresh ground pepper and sea salt.
[My 2 Cents]
I've only tried this with Mozzarella I've purchase in a block and then cubed, but you could use shredded if you have to (It probably won't taste as good). *If you plan to eat the entire salad in one sitting I would drizzle all of the lemon juice. If you think you will have leftovers, only drizzle each individual serving. That way, you can refrigerate the leftovers without having a wilty ruined salad.
