Sweet Tart Spinach Salad

Healthy & fun veggie ideas for the new year


Dark leafy greens are the most nutritious form of veggies.  This salad turns the natural bitterness of spinach into a delightful sweet &tart mixture!


  • 2c. baby spinach or 1c. baby spinach mixed with 1c. spring mix salad
  • 1 large green apple
  • 1/4 c. walnuts
  • 1/4 c. dried cranberries
  • 2 Tbsp. Raspberry vinaigrette dressing or Panera’s poppyseed dressing (or another healthy dressing)

Look for natural or organic dressings without preservatives. Beware of dressings that say nonfat or sugar-free because these often have the most unnatural ingredients to make up for it.  Just choose a vinaigrette dressing and stick with 1-2 tablespoons.  Steer clear of ranch, thousand island, creamy caesar, etc.


  1. Dice the green apple & chop the walnuts
  2. Toss all the salad ingredients together


I’m always looking for new salad combinations to keep them interesting.  This one is my go-to sweet salad combo, enjoy!

  1. I love this type of salad! Another great way I make it is using greek yogurt as dressing, just put all the ingredients and a scoop of greek yogurt in a tupperware and shake! Its super healthy and has a delicious tangy taste!
