A few handfuls of baby spinach (organic)
1/2 avocado (cubed or sliced)
dried handful of dried cranberries

Mix everything in a bowl and make dressing below.
Honey Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette (from allrecipes.com)
I just made half of this recipe as we don’t need much.
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon honey (agave can be used)
- salt and pepper to taste
Whisk all ingredients and use for above salad.
