Spinach Chopped Green Salad


This is such a yummy healthy salad definitely worth going to store to buy all the ingredients!  The kids love it too!


Ingredients

Salad
Cucumber
Avocado
Cilantro (fresh just leaves no stems)
Green onion
Alfalfa sprouts
Baby spinach

Dressing
Olive oil
Red wine vinegar
Dijon mustard
Fresh ground pepper

Chop all salad ingredients, add half to bowl, make a well in the middle of salad bowl and add olive oil, red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, and a little fresh ground pepper.  Toss salad, and add rest of ingredients.  Enjoy!


Cilantro is a good source of folic acid, and also helps detox heavy metals out of your system including mercury, lead and cadmium.
Spinach also a good source of folic acid, calcium, and whole list of nutrients!

I have a bunch of spinach in the fridge that I hadn't decided what to do with. That salad looks great! I also have a post to link up: Simple Exercises to Prevent Injury http://www.itsbettereveryday.com/2011/02/simple-exercises-to-avoid-injury/

Looks good. I'll have to post about the spinach salad I'm eating.

@Sarah spinach is also good for green smoothies.

I love baby spinach! I have to say it's my favorite kind of leafy greens. I use it in salads, sandwiches, wraps, pastas. It's very tasty and versatile!
