Spinach and Tomato Staple Salad

by Polly N on November 12, 2010

I know you’re probably wondering why on earth I’m posting a recipe for a salad in November when all you want to be doing is curling up on the sofa digging into hearty soup and all I can say is “I hear ya!” (Soup recipe will be posted very soon..)┬áBut this salad is one that features in my diet almost daily. I don’t have to think about it – I just throw it all together and it’s super simple and nutritious! So with no further delay – here it is.

Spinach and Tomato Staple Salad

  • 2 cups fresh spinach (organic if possible)
  • 3 baby tomatoes, quartered
  • 3 sundried tomatoes in oil, sliced (I personally think Waitrose serve yourself deli are the best)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 red pepper, sliced
  • handful cashews
  • handful punpkin seeds
  • any other nuts or seeds you would like to add

The basic salad consists of, yep, you guessed it, spinach and tomato and to keep it varied I switch the nuts and seeds I throw in. On this particular day, I was feeling kinda crazy and added a sprinkle of this stuff which is delicious and excellent for the time-poor.

I like to add my Turmeric Tornado dressing for an extra potent kick-ass cancer boost. (Cancer cells find turmeric so abhorrent that they actually commit suicide – who knew! If you’re feeling geeky and want to know the real name for this process, it is called apoptosis.)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • ┬╝ teaspoon turmeric
  • Pinch black pepper

Mix all ingredients together in a high speed blender, pour over salad and enjoy knowing you’re kicking cancer-cell butt!
