Superfood Salad

Why do I LOVE this salad? It's darn delicious and full of amazing nutrients! Here's your basic ingredients and why they rock...

- Spinach: protects your eyes

- Quinoa: full of fiber to keep you full

- Avocados: has potassium that can lower your blood pressure

- Almonds: full of the potent antioxidant vitamin E to protect your heart

- Strawberries: has antioxidants that can prevent cancer

- Blueberries: has antioxidants that can improve your memory

Doesn't get much better than that. I topped it with a honey mustard dressing. Here's an incredibly delicious homemade version!

Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing:

1 cup olive oil

4 scant Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar

2 tsp soy sauce

2T Honey

2T Dijon Mustard

2 tsp grated fresh ginger or 1/4 tsp ground ginger

2 cloves of garlic smashed

1/2 tsp salt

Directions: Put all ingredients in a food processor or whisk together until completely smooth. I would recommend using a food processor. Dressing can be stored in fridge for 1-2 weeks, just smell it to make sure that it hasn’t started to go rancid. Before serving, bring to room temperature and whisk vigorously to counteract the oil congealing.
