If you’re like me, you’ll agree that the best part of any salad is the dressing. ;) With this salad, you’ll get your healthy greens like the broccoli and spinach, but you’ll also get a light, tasty (and also healthy!) dressing. It’s important that the dressing matches the “clean-eating” of the salad so it doesn’t completely defeat the purpose of eating a healthy meal.
The dressing is a refreshing combo of olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, salt and pepper. They are all incredibly simple ingredients that make for a perfectly zesty dressing when combined. And they compliment the vegetables in this salad nicely. Other than the broccoli and spinach, this salad also consists of carrots and onions for some extra flavor and crunch.
A few pulses with my food processor gets me nicely chopped vegetables in less than a minute! So, I highly suggest using one when it comes time to chop the onions and carrots. Here’s a link to the Ninja chopper I love to use at home all the time.
With this easy, healthy salad, I promise it won’t feel like a chore trying to eat clean! Especially when you top it off with some sliced avocado for some healthy fat and even more delicious flavor. With all the different diets and lifestyle choices in this world today, I think this salad will fit in well with almost all of them! And for those of you who are still eating carbs, you can definitely make this as a side salad for your pasta dinner. ;)
