A Salad A Day – Day Five

Since I have a real sweet tooth, when I was thinking up what kind of salad to make today I had to go with something fruity. This salad is a spinach salad made with diced kiwi and a Strawberry Vinaigrette. I added walnuts for protein and healthy fat. It was delicious and just what I needed to replenish me after my morning power yoga.

Strawberry Kiwi Spinach Salad with Walnuts

Serves one (multiply serving as needed)

  • 2 large handfuls of baby spinach
  • 1 kiwi, diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 2-3 tablespoons Strawberry Vinaigrette (recipe below)

Strawberry Vinaigrette

  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sunflower oil
  • 3 tablespoons all fruit strawberry jam
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Whisk all the ingredients together in a small dish. Makes about 1 cup.

I have been feeling better the last few days, now that I have been taking more time to do something for myself. I am again reminded that self-love is not selfish, but necessary to function and to best be able to love others. My hubby even bought me some essential oils so I have been taking the time to have a bath with the oils and without the kids for the first time in a long time. Whenever I would run a bath the girls would be right there with their feet over the tub. It has been nice to relax a little and find time to take a breath in the middle of all the chaos. And I assure you there is no end to the daily chaos around here.

  1. I never really liked salad much until I tried this one. This is the single most delicious salad I have ever tasted in my life. I never ate a salad as fast as I ate this one.
