Cooking with StyleGamblers - Spring salad

Spring salad
written by Agata / photos by Agata


 Hi everyone! This is time of the year when I'm desperately searching for a holiday destination. I didn't found anything yet, but I'm very determined :) After those few cold winter months, I feel that my body needs some sun rays. But while I'm still searching I will try to restore my energy and put my body into spring mode. There is nothing better than changing your diet from winter comforting foods to light green meals. Even by looking at it I feel happier and more optimistic. Preparing this salad will not take you longer than 10 minutes and is loaded with vitamins and minerals. Leafy vegetables are a good choice for a healthful diet because they do not contain cholesterol and are naturally low in calories and sodium. The best way to get enough vitamins is to eat right foods like this delicious salad.


 INGREDIENTS:
 (makes 2 portions)
4 cups fresh baby spinach
8 large strawberries, sliced
1 cup sugar snap peas
1/2 large cucumber, sliced
3 tbsp almond flakes

for dressing:
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp apple vinegar
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp honey
salt and pepper 
 
 DIRECTIONS:
 1. Rinse all the greens and gently stir together in a large bowl
2. Mix all dressing ingredients until well combined
3. Toss all ingredients together with your desired amount of dressing until combined
4. Place on a plte and sprinkle with almond flakes

Enjoy!
