Spinach, Berries and Avocado Salad from your local Farmer’s Market!
Spinach, Berries and Avocado Salad from your local Farmer’s Market or your favorite Store like Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s.
As most of you who know me, I am always experimenting and taking recipes from cookbooks and anywhere else I can find new fun and healthy food to try. I came across with one on the internet.
I loved the picture and the ingredients and I could tell this would be an amazing salad.
The Ingredients: Spinach(8-14 oz), Mango (1), Avocado(1), Blackberries (8oz), Raspberries(8oz), Canola Oil(1/4cup-1/2 cup), Pine nuts91/4 cup to 1/2cup), Honey(2 table spoons), and then here you can play with depending on taste 2-3 table spoons of (lemon, or white wine vinegar, or orange Champaign vinegar or orange juice) and your level of comfort for citrus.
Key steps: Toast the pine nuts over a hot stove top , need to watch it close and keep moving the nuts 3-6 minutes and do not burn…(if you do not want pine nuts substitute, almonds, walnuts or sunflower seeds it will taste different but still good)
Mango Vinaigrette: one mango, if you cannot get fresh sweet, or tart mango then use frozen mango, combine white wine vinegar or other citrus, about 2 table spoon of honey, about a cup of canola oil and even a table spoon of water. Puree the entire ingredients until they are thick, smooth and like a velvety dressing.
I recommend either a white plate or a black plate but not ones with lots of designs: place the spinach depending on the number of people (8-14 ounces) then add the berries to give it a nice color and then the sliced avocadoes and then the toasted pine nuts!
Drizzle the Mango Vinaigrette on top of the salad and let me know if you liked itJ
