I hope you are ready for some freshness, because today I have for you a very easy and most delicious Strawberry, Apple + Quinoa Spinach Salad!
This hearty fruit & spinach salad is a nutritious combination of brightly colored strawberries, crisp apple slices, juicy red grapes, all tossed with quinoa, pecans, spinach, and finished off with a simple balsamic dressing.
Light, yet filling, this is a perfect salad for a healthy lunch or a light dinner. It may not be a wildly new salad, but it is a classic and much deserving to be in the recipe collection.
Dressing: In a small bowl whisk together the oil, vinegar, mustard, maple syrup, salt, and pepper until well combined.
Salad: In a large bowl add the greens, quinoa, strawberries, apples, grapes and nuts. Pour dressing over salad mixture and toss to combine.
Serve right away and enjoy!
Serves 3 – 4
The pecans were delicious here, but feel free to use walnuts halves, slivered almonds, pepitas or hemp hearts if you prefer.
