Earth Day Salad

 Happy Earth Day all!

For Earth Day, I decided to eat vegetarian this weekend and make a salad for dinner.

This salad is perfect for Earth Day, a light lunch, for dinner or anytime.

I used baby spinach but you can use what leafy greens you like instead.

I’ve used a clean dish towel to pat dry spinach, but you can use a salad spinner to dry spinach if preferred instead.

I’ve used almonds, but you can omit almonds if there’s a nut allergy.

I also used feta cheese but you can use bleu cheese if preferred instead.

2 - 3 c. baby spinach

1 onion sliced

1 cucumber sliced

1/3 - 1/2 c. each: feta cheese, fresh blueberries, toasted almonds (optional)

1/4 c. sunflower seeds

Rinse blueberries in a clean colander, set aside to drain.

Rinse, snip ends off and pat dry spinach.

Peel, rinse, slice onion.

Rinse, cut ends of, slice cucumber.

In a clean salad bowl, place spinach.

Arrange vegetables on top of spinach.

Top salad with the blueberries, cheese and almonds.

Sprinkle sunflower seeds on top of salad.

Serves 4.
