This morning I was in the mood for something green and something fruity, but I didn’t want to “drink” my breakfast as a smoothie. So, instead I made this very tasty and fruity vegan spinach salad.
2 c. loosely packed baby spinach
1/4 c. sprouts
1/4 c. cucumber, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 fresh peach, cut in 1 inch pieces
1/4 c. blueberries
1/4 c. fresh cut pineapple, cut in 1 inch pieces
1 T. pecan pieces (optional)
1 t. pumpkin seeds (optional)
juice from the freshly cut fruit (optional)
Place spinach on plate. Top with cucumber and sprouts. Then add peach, blueberries and pineapple. Sprinkle with nuts and seeds. There’s no need for any dressing since the fruit provides plenty of juice. However, you can drizzle the juice from the freshly cut fruit over the salad to add an extra bit of moisture to the greens if you desire.
