Homage to Spinach 2: Spinach Salad with Tomatoes, Avocado, Goat Cheese, Strawberries, Flax


Tasty, easy, healthy; make this one of your favorite salads, this summer. ©Joyce Hays, Target Health Inc.

This summer, we're going to be eating fresh salads, loaded with super healthy ingredients, as the main dish, along with chilled wines. Fresh fruit and sugar-free jello cake for dessert. ©Joyce Hays, Target Health Inc.


1 box baby spinach, washed twice or three times, then dried on paper towel

2 or 3 plum tomatoes

1 avocado, cut in pieces

1 container creamy goat cheese, cut in pieces

4 sweet strawberries, cut in half or 1.5 cup of fresh watermelon pieces

1 cup of toasted flax seeds, or use some of the flax crackers and crush them into crumbs

1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped fine

1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped fine

Flax seeds are in the top 10 to 15 list of healthy foods to include in a regular diet. Keep a large jar out on your kitchen counter and simply throw a handful into nearly everything you make. ©Joyce Hays, Target Health Inc.

Using more flax seeds on everything, now. ©Joyce Hays, Target Health Inc.


Make a simple dressing with:

walnut oil (not olive oil)

zest of 1 lemon

fresh lemon juice

4 garlic cloves squeezed

Pinch chili flakes

We had spinach pie with the spinach salad and fresh mango for dessert. Did not seem redundant at all. ©Joyce Hays, Target Health Inc.


Imagine living on an island with this sweet fruit growing everywhere. I'm going to try to create some mango desserts this summer. ©Joyce Hays, Target Health Inc.
