This is so easy and so good for you. Next time you're at the grocery store, head to the produce section and grab a bag of baby spinach, a bag of matchstick carrots and a ripe avocado. That's all there is to this winning combination. I whipped up a jar of my favorite home-made dressing, tossed in a few croutons, and served this with baked chicken.
1 bag baby spinach
1 bag matchstick carrots
1 avocado, sliced
The nice thing about this is you can use as much of the ingredients as you want.
3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp. dried basil or oregano
Salt & pepper to taste
a little minced garlic from a jar
a little grey poupon mustard
Shake well in a jar with a tight-fitting lid, pour over salad and toss. Serve immediately.
