Spinach, Mango + Avocado Salad
I love inspiring others to get amongst the theme and movement of “Meat-free Monday” by being the example. Vego or vegan options don’t have to be boring. In fact, it pushes you to get a little more creative if you ask me 😉 For example, this summer inspired salad dressed in lime, evoo and Maggie Beer vino cotto.
1 large handful of baby spinach leaves
1 slice/half of a medium sized mango, cut into cubes
1 large or two small celery sticks, finely sliced
4 large cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
½ small carrot, roughly chopped or diced
½ small avocado, cubed
12-15 almonds, toasted if you wish
1-2 tbsp of currants
2-3 tbsp evoo (replace 1 tbsp evoo with cold-pressed Hemp Seed Oil if you have it on hand – check out the Tips below)
1-2 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp vinno cotto
salt + pepper, to season
Grab a serving bowl of choice and add in all the salad ingredients.
Take a small jar with a lid (or use a glass and spoon) and add all the dressing ingredients. Shake hard and then pour over the salad and serve.
For a non-meat free night, this salad pairs well with chicken, prawns, crayfish or salmon and pickled ginger… trust me!
