Recipe of the month: Springtime spinach salad
April 28, 2017

Spring has finally sprung and our local BC produce are coming into season, including nutrient packed spinach.

Tips from your Dietitian:

It’s a rich source of iron and calcium and very versatile, served both hot or cold. Try spinach raw as the base of a salad, add it to a wrap, or try it cooked in your next omelet or lasagna. Visit the BC Farmers Market website for a list of local in-season produce.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1/2 a large tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 50g herbed goat cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tbsp of avocado chopped
  • 2 tbsp of soy nuts
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds, toasted
  • 2 tbsp vinaigrette salad dressing (your choice!)

Directions:

  • Put the nuts and seeds in a dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until golden in spots (about 3 minutes).
  • Mix together spinach, tomatoes and mushroom and toss with dressing
  • Top with remaining ingredients
